Holiday childcare poll — August 2020

We undertook a short two question poll for ITV on the subject of holiday childcare in the first summer of the pandemic.

Key findings 

  • 53% of parents had to change their work pattern because of a lack or shortage of holiday childcare provision — 39% did not
  • 45% of parents had to use annual leave in order to make up for a shortage or lack of holiday childcare provision this summer — 44% did not


A short poll, promoted to parents via social media, was active between 3rd and 7th August 2020. 659 parents completed the poll.
