Childcare from 1st June

Along with vulnerable children and children of critical workers, children of any parent will be able to attend a childcare setting from 1st June - however children aged 3 and 4 years could be prioritised. Settings will need to determine what they can offer depending on staff available, space and resources, so parents may not immediately have access to a place or the sessions they require or previously had.

If you are a critical worker and need urgent childcare please contact our team at: eeac@staffordshire.gov.uk
