Choosing the right kind of childcare setting can be a difficult decision. There are different types of childcare providers:
- Day nurseries and pre-schools for under 5s,
- Breakfast clubs, after school clubs and holiday schemes for school-aged children
- Childminders who care for children of all age ranges
- Nannies and home-based childcare
The best childcare settings expect questions and are happy to answer them.
Remember, not every childcare setting will match your child's personality, so be prepared to look around. Don't get disheartened – there's a suitable childcare setting out there for you and your child.
