Childcare Provider Liverpool
Choosing a nursery is a big decision for any parent – you want the very best care, education and safety. Many of our parents come to us through friends recommendations or are previous customers.
If you are thinking of looking for a nursery these are some of the things we suggest you may want to look out for:

Your Health Visiting Team, Social Worker or Children’s Centre can discuss with you the benefits of your child taking up a free part-time childcare place. Places will be provided in local childcare settings (including Childminders and some Schools from September 14). All providers will have received a good or outstanding Ofsted report.

Extra financial help
The free entitlement may not cover your family’s needs because of things like work commitments. If this is the case you may be able to get financial help with the costs of extra childcare.
