Types of childcare.
Choosing someone to look after your child is never easy, but in the Scarborough & Whitby area there are a variety of different options to choose from.
Private Day Nurseries
These are OFSTED registered privately run nurseries which usually offer a variety of different sessions. Usually they are open from 8am to 6pm although some may do extended hours, and are open throughout the year other than public holidays.
Pre-school playgroups usually offer sessional care for children from the age of 2 to 5. They often work only in term-time, and in most cases offer funded provision for 3 and 4 year olds. They will be OFSTED registered and you can usual pay for top up sessions if you need more than the funded sessions. These are often but not always attached to a pre-school although attendance does not guarantee a place at the primary school.
These are OFSTED regulated childcare professionals who look after children in their own home. They are usually flexible and may be able to offer school drop offs and pick ups. Hours will vary however most will do at least 7.30am-6pm.
Nannies & Baby Sitters
These carers are not necessarily OFSTED registered and would look after your children in your own home. Prices and experience varies greatly so do your research and get recommendations.
In line with Government guidance on COVID-19, some businesses remain closed whilst others have the go ahead to open. Social distancing restrictions remain in place. For any of the listings on here please check with the venue if it is open or closed before attending.
I am endeavouring to keep the listings as up to date as possible but please check with venues first, thanks for your understanding at this crazy time, Team Mumbler.
