Choosing childcare

The families information service provides free and impartial information on childcare and early education.

If you need help with finding childcare to suit your needs we will be happy to help you.

Finding good quality childcare can be quite daunting. Once you have received your list of childcare providers from the families information service, there are lots of things to look out for and remember to ask when you start visiting. How do you know if your child will be happy? How do they cater for your child's needs? Do they provide feedback about how your child is doing? What if my child doesn't like it?

See the five steps to choosing childcare guide form the Family and Childcare Trust for more information on making the right choice for your child.
