Childcare setting closure support

If you are affected by a closure of a childcare setting, our Brokerage Officer can support you with finding suitable alternative childcare. 


Notification of closure

Where possible, your childcare provider should notify you in writing of the setting closing.  This should indicate the planned date of when the closure will take place. Any queries that relate to the closure should be raised directly with the provider.
