If you need help finding childcare or have any questions, the BCP Family Information Service are here to help. Call us on 01202 261970 or email earlyyears.continuity@bcpcouncil.gov.uk .

It's important to find the right childcare. Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole has a wide range of Ofsted registered, high quality childcare settings that can provide your child with valuable early education and social opportunties. 

If your child has special educational needs or disabilities, please see the SEND information contained within the childcare provider records to help support you in choosing a setting. 

It's important your child will be happy and settled and that the childcare meets your practical needs too. The Family and Childcare Trust has written a useful guide to choosing childcare which you may find helpful. 

If you need help finding childcare or advice on any aspect, including childcare funding please contact the Family Information Service on 01202 261970 or email familyinformation@bcpcouncil.gov.uk
