Why should I take up the offer?
We understand that making the decision to send your child to a nursery or a childminder can be a big step for some parents and carers, and it is natural to have some concerns. Every child and family is different but there is lots of help and support available.
What are the benefits of sending my child to a nursery or childminder?
- Children develop quickly in their earliest years, and early education supports their development and overall wellbeing.
- Research shows that good quality early education and childcare from an early age makes a real difference to how well a child does in the future.
- Early years and childcare settings are wonderful places for your child to learn, develop new skills, make new friends and have fun.
- It will also free up your time to support you to take up training, start, or return to work, and support you to reduce your childcare bill.
