Day care


Day Care can be provided by Day Nurseries or Childminders:

Day Nurseries care for children and babies from three or four months old up to school age. They offer long days and short holidays. They are usually more expensive than regular nurseries.

Registered Childminders are professional day carers who work in their own homes to provide care and education for other people's children by creating a home away from home. All childminders are required by law to register with Ofsted. Police and Social Services record checks are carried out on the childminder and all persons over 16 living in the house. The childminder's home is also checked for hygiene and safety.
