The Department is unable to provide details of child care places for East Worthing and Shoreham. However, from April 1999 to December 2003 West Sussex local authority created 12,005 new child care places helping some 21,702 children. This shows an increase in the stock of child care places, taking into account turnover, of 7,334 helping some 13,837 children.
