Nurseries, Preschools and Childminder settings are wonderful places for children to learn and have fun with friends, which supports their development and their overall wellbeing. Attending childcare can be an exciting and joyful experience for children and can also help provide a routine as they develop their social skills. Early years education is an important stage for children where they can flourish and get the best start in life.

The legislation underpinning lockdown restrictions has been published, and guidance has been updated to confirm that early years settings and childminders can remain open, and parents can continue to use these settings as normal.
Parents will be able to access other childcare activities (including wraparound care and some out of school settings) where reasonably necessary to enable parents to work, seek work, attend education or training, or for the purposes of respite care for carers.
