Things to consider when choosing childcare

The best type of childcare for you depends on your family situation and the needs of your child. As your child grows, their play and educational needs will also change, and you may need to consider different types of childcare.

  • Allow yourself plenty of time to choose the right childcare for you. If you are planning to return to work after the birth of your baby you should begin your search before the baby is born. You should also be prepared to spend time settling your child in with your chosen carer.
  • Some childcare providers have a waiting list for places so it is important to think ahead about the type of care and provision that you would like to use.
  • Registered Childminders, Day Nurseries, Out of School Clubs, Playgroups and Cylch Meithrin are all registered and inspected by Care Inspectorate Wales.
  • You can also visit Care Inspectorate Wales for more help and advice on how to choose the right childcare for you and your family.
  • You will find lots of information about choosing childcare here.
