Childcare in Haringey survey

We need your help!

Haringey has a duty to ensure that there are enough childcare places within the borough. We are also keen to understand how childcare needs have changed in light of COVID. 

You can help by completing our simple 2-3 minute childcare survey online.

The survey ends on 8 December 2021 and we will let you know the outcome of the survey during spring 2022.
