Survey: how are childcare and playwork settings currently operating?


Swansea University is undertaking research to find out how out of school children’s play settings are currently operating.

The university is seeking participants that work in childcare and playwork settings to take part in a short online survey. This includes those working in adventure playgrounds, after-school clubs, holiday playschemes and mobile play provision.

The survey will take about 10 minutes to complete.

The survey is part of follow up research. Previously, the university looked at how settings coped during the first lockdown and following reopening in July 2020.

The data is being collected by Dr Pete King. The research has been approved by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Swansea University. 

Closing date for completing survey: January 2022
