Welcome to the NDNA Nursery Finances Survey for England

What you tell us about how your nursery places are funded and about how your business has been affected by rises in national minimum wages and business rates is crucial to the sector and NDNA’s lobbying.

There is a growing interest and awareness among decision-makers and politicians in terms of the importance of early years and childcare. This evidence and data will allow us to challenge the Government on its refusal to review funding rates and the funding process.

Ahead of the Government’s Comprehensive Spending Review in autumn, we will use these results you give us to make recommendations for urgent actions to the Government at the highest levels, based on hard facts and figures.

Your feedback is essential to making this survey as comprehensive as possible. Thank you so much for taking the time to respond especially when you’re all so busy. The survey is relatively short and should take about 15 minutes if you have the following information ready before you start:
  • Your hourly rate and shortfall (if applicable) for 2-year-olds, 3 and 4-year-olds
  • The proportion of your places that are government-funded and parent-funded
  • Your last business rates bill
  • The increase in your staffing budget as a result of minimum wage rises in April
  • Information regarding any local authority support grants you have received
  • An approximate figure for loss of parental income as a result of Covid closures since June 2020.
NDNA campaigns tirelessly on issues such as government funding and business rates, making sure that policy makers and politicians understand the challenges of running a childcare business. By being a member of NDNA you have a stronger voice on issues that matter to you.

As a thank you we will put anyone interested into a prize draw to win a £50 voucher from our partners TTS or one of two £25 vouchers from Consortium.

The closing date for the NDNA Nursery Finances Survey is Midday on Monday 9 August.
