State of the School Age Childcare Sector Survey


As the lead agency for the development and promotion of children’s Play and School Age Childcare in Northern Ireland, PlayBoard periodically gather research on the ‘State of the Sector’. PlayBoard NI would like to invite you to be part of the 2016 State of the Sector (School Age Childcare) survey that they are carrying out with all School Age Childcare providers across the province.

The survey findings will help PlayBoard review the contribution and benefits of school age childcare services to the development of children, parents and the wider community. It will also help examine the current case for continued support of the sector in the medium to long term.

All School Age Childcare providers are urged to have input into the final report by taking the time to complete the questionnaire below – your input will be much appreciated.

Please complete by Thursday 30th June 2016. It will take around 10 minutes to complete. Organisations that respond to the survey will also be included in a prize draw for £40 Argos vouchers.

Please remember no matter how large or small your School Age Childcare organisation is - we need to hear from you!
