Childcare sector team
After years of substantial decline, the market is slowly recovering. The economic growth and recent increase in the legal child benefit have led to a higher demand for childcare services. The demand has changed in recent years, however. Parents now have additional needs when it comes to childcare, such as flexible hours and days. Location, the presence of an outdoor area, consistency in terms of staff, concern and engagement on the part of carers, and the availability of activities also appear to be important additional selection criteria for parents. The use of social media and apps continues to rise which leads to an increasingly more important role for privacy and how to best protect it.
The Childcare sector team would be happy to help you with any of the various aspects that play or will play a role in this area.
