Child care (ages 0 to 5)
Nursery care and childcare are appropriate for children aged from 0 to 4/5, prior to starting school, and are mainly privately provided with a variety of quality and costs.
It is important to remember that childcare for the under 5s in the UK is relatively expensive and you would usually pay £30 to £35 per day. Children get free childcare sessions from the term after their third birthday until they start school (term time only).
Plymouth University has Freshlings Nursery on campus which offers childcare to staff and students at the university. The waiting list for Freshlings means you should make your application to them well in advance.
Alternatively there are also many other nurseries, child-minders and pre-schools in Plymouth to choose from.
In the UK all childcare providers are regulated and must follow government guidelines and curricula.
