    Thank you for your valued feedback on this consultation.

    There were 434 total visits to the 24/7 consultation page and we received 58 survey responses.

    A summary of the results:

    • 72.4% do shift work, or have someone in their family that does shift work

    • 89.7% indicated that they would benefit from a 24/7 child care centre

    • 46.6% indicated extended hours (6am opening to 10pm closing time)

    • 20.7% are interested in through the night care

    • 24.1% 1-2 days per week

    • 37.9% 3-5 days per week

    These results indicate that there is a need for extended hours care, which is greater than the need for 24/7 care at this point in time. This will be taken into consideration as a guide for future planning within Children’s Services.
