Choosing childcare checklist

You may wish to visit several providers before you decide which one is for you.

Follow our childcare checklist to help you decide:

  • Ask to see staff qualifications.
  • Is the environment safe and secure?
  • What’s on the lunch and snack menu?
  • Who supervises and how?
  • How many staff are there to children?
  • Is the equipment creative, varied and high quality?
  • Are the toilets clean and appropriate for children?
  • What happens in case of an emergency?
  • Ask to see the Ofsted inspection.
