Welcome to the official Newcastle directory of childcare. We work with Ofsted to provide information about registered childcare providers like day nurseries, childminders, playgroups, before and after school clubs. There is also information about crèches and parent & toddler groups.
You can use our postcode search and map to find who is closest to your home. 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.
In the information about each childcare setting you will also find useful information like the grade from their last ofsted inspection. In the section marked "Local Offer" in the record, you can see how this childcare provider describes how they provide services for children with additional needs or disabilities.
If you need help with choosing childcare or understanding your options, you can visit the Newcastle City Council website,
