Coventry Early Years team is collating information on nurseries, pre-schools and childminders who are offering a service for key workers and vulnerable children.
Please e-mail [email protected] and the list of childcare providers will be e-mailed out to parents and carers as soon as possible.
If you are a childcare provider who has informed us that you were open but your circumstances have changed, please inform the Early Years team by e-mailing [email protected] .This will support us to signpost parents and carers of displaced children to provision that remains open.
Ofsted is aware that these are extremely worrying times for both settings and parents. However, the health, safety and well-being of children is our first consideration and government continues to expect childcare to take place only within registered settings.
Ofsted will consider legal enforcement action against those who set up unregistered childcare, in line with their duties as a regulator. This is in order to keep children as safe as possible in these difficult times.
