Important Childcare information during COVID-19 restrictions :

Many childcare providers are currently closed during the COVID-19 outbreak. Those that are open are only permitted to care for children of keyworkers as identified by the latest guidance from Government.

For the immediate future, our website has changed to show providers that are open to cater for children of keyworkers.

If you are a keyworker requiring childcare immediately, please use our website to search for providers that are open locally, and make enquiries with them. You may also contact us by phone or email for a list.

We are able to provide extra help to find an immediate place through our brokerage service. If you have been unsuccessful in finding a place, or need help in making enquiries, please complete our online form to request assistance. You may also contact us by phone or email to request assistance.
