Childcare for key workers


Did you know that even if you have never used childcare before, or if your own nursery or childminder is closed, there are many across the county who are happy to take your children if you are a key worker? This can be a temporary move while your usual provider is closed.

As part of our commitment to helping key workers, we have made extra resources available and have a dedicated team to help you find childcare.

If you normally receive funding such as the free early education entitlement at 15 or 30 hours childcare costs, this stays with your usual provider, but we are also providing additional funding to any setting you transfer to so that any costs that funding usually covers are not passed on to you.

You can look for childcare providers at Families Information Service (FIS).
