Search for childcare

Looking for childcare or free nursery education? Need childcare that can pick up or drop off at your local school? Search the family information service to find out what's near to you.


Your childcare options will be different depending on the age of your child.

There's no single type of childcare that suits every family and it may be that a mix of childcare suits you.

Not all providers choose to make their information available on the internet. So if you can't find what you're looking for, then contact our families information service, email info.fis@derbyshire.gov.uk or tel: 01629 535793.

Once you know what's available in your area, make contact with the providers to find out what they offer and whether this will meet your needs.

To help families in their search for childcare Coram Family and Childcare have provided 5 steps to choosing childcare guidance along with a short film for parents to help them when choosing a nursery.

Most childcare for children aged under 8 is registered and inspected by Ofsted early years. You can find a provider's inspection report. All Ofsted-registered providers must display their Ofsted registration certificate.

We don't endorse or recommend services. We advise you to carefully consider which service is right for you and your child.
