 The Council is required to make sure there is enough childcare for parents in work or training.  It has to publish an annual report to show this.

Starting up new provision in Newcastle

Early Years Sector Support Team can support you to set up new group provision or become a childminder.

For group provision we will meet with you to talk through your business plan and ideas.

For childminding we offer a briefing twice a year to share information about the role and registration process. You can find further information about being a childminder here.
