Nurseries are for children under school age to play and learn and have fun in groups while their parents work or study.

Nurseries have different ways of operating so look around for one that suits your child and you. Some nurseries may be in partnership with us to supply pre-school education.

Services are registered with the Care Inspectorate with staff qualified, registered and have background checks completed. National Care Standards can help you decide about a service, they are the minimum standard required by law and services are scored against how well they meet the standards.
