Childcare Professionals

Self update provider portal

The Childcare Act 2006 requires Leicester City Council to hold, maintain and share a range of information on the childcare services based with the city and to conduct a Childcare Sufficiency Assessment on an annual basis.

To assist the Council in meeting the requirements of the Act, all childcare providers are required to provide the minimum range of information set out in the Act

How is the information collected

The full range of information is currently collected on an annual basis and all childcare providers will be prompted to renew their information. This is currently collected online using the childcare profile form.  

Any information changes can be reported at any time after the full collection by using the change of services form.

How is the information used

The information is used to inform the general public of the childcare services available in the City. It is also used to support the Council in carrying out statutory tasks such as understanding the childcare sufficiency levels and to the costs associated with it.

The Council will hold all personal information securely and will not publish or share the information with partner organisation without prior consent.  A copy of the privacy notice is available to download.

If you require any assistance with completing the online forms, contact your Early Education Development officer.

Important changes for 2018

Local authorities are required to collect up to date information on a termly basis and Leicester City Council will be implementing this change during 2018. 

To improve the way the information is collected a new Self Update Provider Portal will be used.  More information about this change will be given to all child care providers in the near future.
