Types of childcare

Helping you to find the right childcare

There are various types of childcare available, from childminders to children’s centres, nannies to nurseries.

Think about what type of childcare will be the most suitable for your child and your family, and think about the sort of questions you need to ask.

For example,

  • What age do they start from?
  • What sort of hours are you looking for?
  • How much does the childcare cost?
  • Where should it be?

There’s lots of information in this section to help you find the most appropriate type of childcare for your family.
