Deciding on childcare is, of course, a very personal process for every family, so we did not feel reviews or recommendations would be appropriate or helpful. All over 3s are entitled to 15 hours free childcare per week (term time) starting from the school term after they turn 3 years old. More info on the website. You can redeem these hours at private nurseries and childminders (most will give you a discount off full-time hours, for instance), state school nurseries and drop-off playgroups. We have provided the information below as a starting point only, and wish you luck with your arrangements!
