Run by private individuals, community groups, commercial businesses, Montessori organisations or by employers; day nurseries generally care for children from 3 months (sometimes 6 weeks) to school-age and offer care from around 8:00 to 18:00 for most of the year. Most offer a choice of morning, afternoon or full day sessions and some nurseries provide out of school childcare facilities for school-age children. Costs vary depending on the age of your child (babies generally cost more because facilities need a higher staff: child ratio in line with Ofsted regulations).
