Choosing childcare and early education can be a big step for many families. As well as making sure that the type of childcare you choose is the one that best meets the needs of you and your child, you also need reassurance that your child will be safe, secure, well looked-after and happy.
There is a wide range of childcare options available in Barnet. FYi (Barnet's families and young people's information service) can provide you with all the information you need.
Looking for childcare?
We hold free Childcare Marketplace events throughout the year for parents and carers who are looking for childcare in this borough, where you can come and speak with different types of registered childcare providers in Barnet.
Our last event took place on Tuesday 25 March 2014 where we had a great turn out from both parents and childcare providers. Keep an eye out here on our webpage where we will advertise the date for the next one.
This event gives you an opportunity to find out about all the childcare options available to you, help and advice on paying for childcare and much more including information on Free Early Education (FEE) .
You can also contact FYi who can provide you with a list of providers to meet your requirements.
You can search online using our childcare directory or contact us using the details on the right.
What is the childcare directory?
If you would like to search for childcare yourself, you can use our childcare directory to find out what childcare is available to you in your local area.
As well as providing you with a list of local childcare providers, it will also give you essential details about different providers including:
- how close they are to where you live
- how much childcare will cost
- opening times
- contact details.
All of which can help you to choose a childcare provider which is right for you and your child.
