You can use this search to find providers near your home by:

Can't find a provider?
If you can't find a report for a provider, it may be because:
- for their security, we only list childminders, home childcarers and childcare on domestic premises by their Unique Reference Number (URN), so no results will be returned for searches by name or address. We do not publish their names or addresses in order to safeguard the welfare of children and protect their privacy. You may obtain the names and addresses of those wishing to offer childcare places from your local family information service. Please go to www.direct.gov.uk/parents, then click on the link ‘finding and choosing childcare’ where you will be able to link to your family information service
- the provider could be closed – further information about closed providers is below.
When you search for a provider the results returned automatically will only display operating providers. There may have been previous providers operating under this name or at this address. If a provider with this name or at this address closed after 16 December 2010 you may click on the ‘All providers’ option above the results to show both open and closed providers.
Can't find an inspection report?
If you can find the provider but it does not have the report that you are interested in, it may be because the inspection may have taken place recently and the report is still being processed.
Looking for latest published reports?
To search by latest published report, go to the main Inspection reports page and search by date published.
