Letting someone else look after you child can be a big step!
Care to Learn helps by letting you choose the type of childcare that suits you and your child. You can, for example, use it to pay for childcare at any of the following places
- Pre‐school playgroup
- Day nursery
- Out of school club
- Other registered childcare
Childcare providers must be registered with Ofsted, meet national standards and may be inspected to make sure they are providing good quality care.
