The aim of our hub is to  bring together different kinds of childcare for children 0 – 11 in one local area to offer a blended range of options for parents that are flexible, co-ordinated and high quality in a ‘early learning and community childcare hub’. The aim is that it is a one stop shop of information for parents to find out about and access childcare that meets their requirements.

The hub is intended to encourage quality improvement, build the supply of childcare places and create a more ‘blended’ childcare offer, linking up daycare providers and childminders, to support parents’ working patterns. We aim to enable providers to work more closely together.
