Day nurseries

Providing childcare for babies as young as six weeks to pre-school four year olds

Day nurseries take children from two months up to school age. They usually open most of the year and generally openĀ 8am to 6pm but some may offer longer hours. Some may provide out of school care for older children.

This type of care is ideal if you feel happier leaving your child with a team of professional staff trained in childcare who can always provide care even if an individual staff member is away. They are regulated and inspected by Ofsted.
