We have been working since 1986
to promote high quality affordable
childcare for all. We know how important
it is to make the right decisions for
your child and we hope this website
will help you find out more about childcareChildren's Information Services (CIS)
There is a Children's Information Service in every local authority area. Sometimes this will be attached to the local authority, but could also be an individual organisation.
Your local Children's Information Service is the best place to get information on registered and approved childcare providers who operate in your area. They hold lists of registered childminders, nurseries, out-of-school and holiday clubs, pre-school/playgroups and children's leisure activities. Some Children's Information Services may also be able to provide you with information about unregistered childcare, such as nannies or parent and toddler groups
