The Government launched the ChildcareLink helpline and website in December 1999 as part of the National Childcare Strategy. This strategy aims to help people back into the workplace by removing the childcare barrier. The ChildcareLink service is funded by the Department for Education and Skills.
The ChildcareLink national website provides childcare and early years information collected from English local authorities. The website helps you find useful information about the different types of childcare and early education in your local area and helps you to make the right choice for the whole family.
