Parent Survey 2022

03 November 2022
Keyboard survey

The Early Years and Childcare Parent Survey is for parents of children aged 0 – 19 years living in Essex, or up to 25 years if your child has special educational needs or disabilities.


We want to hear about your family’s experience of childcare in Essex so that we can gain a greater understanding of what childcare arrangements you make and if your childcare needs are being met. We also want to hear about your experiences of your child starting primary school and the impact the coronavirus had had on your child’s experiences.


Your information is valued and will inform the 2022 childcare sufficiency assessment and the early years and childcare strategy. Your responses will be treated in strictest confidence and will remain anonymous. Your participation is voluntary. If you wish to withdraw your data, please make a note of the reference code given at the end of the questionnaire. Email this code to by Monday 21 November 2022. After this date, your data will have been combined with that of others.


If you have any questions, please contact us by emailing

This survey will remain open until Monday 21 November 2022.

Thank you for your help
