Each year the Daycare Trust conducts a survey of Family Information Services in England and Wales and Childcare Information Services in Scotland to find out about the cost and availability of holiday childcare. This year's survey found the sufficiency of holiday childcare in England (by which we mean the amount of childcare available, compared with the amount that parents need) fell slightly in the past year but increased in Wales. Both England and Wales suffer from a severe paucity of suitable holiday childcare for children aged 12 and over.
