The Vale of Glamorgan has compiled information to inform the Childcare Sufficiency Assessment 2017 as part of its statutory duty under the Childcare Act 2006. The intention of the report is to provide an assessment of the current levels of childcare within the Vale and the gaps identified via consultation with a variety of stakeholders.
