Childcare sufficiency assessment

A childcare sufficiency assessment compares how much childcare is provided in an area ('supply') with how much is needed ('demand').

Demand for childcare is based on the number of children in the area and the average use of childcare across the whole of the UK.

By comparing supply with demand, we can see whether there is a need for more childcare in Thurrock.
