All nurseries, pre-schools and playgroups give children the opportunity to play and learn, try new things, develop social skills and make friends. 

Private and voluntary nurseries, pre-schools and playgroups

  • Some are open full time (8am to 6pm) and some offer am and/or pm sessions (e.g.9am to 12pm)
  • Some private providers care for very young children and some begin taking children when they are two.
  • are all inspected by Ofsted to make sure that the care they provide is of a good standard.

Find your nearest nursery

If you live near a neighbouring borough make sure you get childcare lists from them as well. Many nurseries offer sibling discounts if you have two or more children at the same nursery.

Even though all children can receive 15 hours a week of free early years' education, not all nurseries offer this so you will need to check before you enrol.
