Childcare

Some of our centres have daytime creche facilities or we may be able to help you with other childcare through our support fund.

You can find out more about the facilities and availability by contacting the programme clerk at the centre of your choice.

Apply for help with childcare

If a creche is not available or not suitable for your child we may be able to help you with alternative arrangements such as a child minder or nursery place.

Our support fund is available to those in financial hardship and where lack of childcare is a barrier to learning.

You can get a copy of the application form and guidance sent to you from Call Derbyshire on 08 345 058 058 or pick them up from your local centre.
