Have a say on child care

PARENTS of pre-school children are being asked to give their views by Northumberland County Council for a survey about Sure Start Centres in the county.

Families using Sure Start, as well as those who do not currently use the service, are invited to take part.

The authority is asking those who attend them to put down the aspects they value the most and what can be improved.

For those people who do not currently use the centres, the county council is keen to find out why.

The survey for parents with children up to four years old will run until June 30 and can be completed online at www.northumberland.gov.uk/pss

They can also be picked-up from any of the Sure Start Centres across Northumberland. Every completed form will be entered into a free prize draw to win £50.
