We would like to hear from all parents/guardians in Northern Ireland about your experiences of childcare.

The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and you will have the chance to win an overnight stay in a two bedroom cottage, with breakfast and access to the Thermal Spa Village at the luxury Galgorm Resort & Spa!

Whether you use formal childcare, your children are cared for by friends or family, or you care for your children yourself, we want to hear from you! This is the eleventh year we have been researching childcare in Northern Ireland and the issues parents face. These findings will help inform our work with policy makers and relevant Departments in the Executive.

We take Data Protection and information security very seriously in compliance with GDPR regulations. We will not share your personal information with any other organisation. Your individual response will remain anonymous and the information you provide will be combined with that of other respondents to give an overall picture of how parents experience childcare across Northern Ireland.

If you have any queries regarding this research, please contact Alexandra Chapman on 02892 678200 or email    

Thank you for your time.
