Choosing Quality Childcare

Choosing childcare or early years education for your child is a huge step for you and your family. There are lots of different childcare options across Torfaen for you to choose from.

Try and give yourself enough time to visit several possible options to get a good idea of what would suit your child. Don’t forget that you are the expert on your child and should trust your feelings.

It can be a good idea to take your child with you to see how staff talk to him or her. Try to go when children are there so you can see if they are happy and busy.

Torfaen Family Information Service (FIS) can inform you of what is appropriate for your child’s age and your childcare needs. Contact us on 0800 0196 330 or email for details of local childcare providers.
