Childcare

For keyworkers

If you are a key worker on the list published by the Government, and are still struggling with childcare so that you can work please feel free to use contacts below and they will see if they can do anything to help. All have been registered childminders for years and are being allowed at present to work with children of key workers.

Perhaps you have grandparents who normally collect from school and you would prefer to keep the elderly more protected. Whatever you need it might be worth a call.
