Day nurseries

Day nurseries provide care and a space to play and learn in groups for children under 5, though some nurseries cater for slightly older children. Day nurseries are open all day but not evenings or weekends. OFSTED registration is compulsory and all nurseries must be registered with their local authority. They are inspected by OFSTED (the Office for Standards in Education) every three to four years.
