Welcome to the official Newcastle directory of childcare – you can search for childcare using the key word search above

To find childcare near you use: 

postcode search

Simply put in the postcode where you are looking for childcare (for instance your home or work) And if you know you are only interested in one type of childcare then you can select that. You can also use filters to find information like who picks up from your child's. school, or who offers free early education places to 2, 3 and 4 year olds. You can also see providers on a map and create a short list of setting. 

Childcare providers are open and operating in a Covid-19 secure way. If have any concerns you can discuss these with providers. If you can’t find what you are looking for then please email

We work with Ofsted to provide information about registered childcare providers like day nurseries, childminders, playgroups, before and after school clubs.  In the information about each childcare setting you will also find useful information like the grade from their last Ofsted inspection.

If you are looking for more information on the types of childcare, funded or free childcare places, help with the cost of childcare or childcare sufficiency please see our childcare information page.
