NEWS: Leeds University survey on childminding during the Covid-19 pandemic

PACEY members in England and Wales are invited to take part in a new survey on childminding during the Covid-19 pandemic. This is a research project supported by the Centre for Employment Relations, Innovation and Change (CERIC) at Leeds University Business School and funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).

If you were a childminder at any point during 2020, you are invited to complete their survey about your experiences of working as a childminder during the Covid-19 pandemic.

This survey is part of the Childcare During COVID-19 project - a large-scale research project that seeks to understand the impact of the pandemic on the early years education and childcare sector in England and Wales. The project aims to gather data and evidence of the challenges that the pandemic poses for the sector and to make policy recommendations that will better support practitioners and families alike.
