Important Coronavirus Information

The Prime Minister has confirmed that the government’s five tests are now being met, and based on all the evidence we will now move forward with plans for the wider opening of education and early years settings from 1 June.

Some providers due to circumstances beyond their control remain closed. 

If you need support in finding a childcare provider local to you, please call 0116 305 7136 or email childcare@leics.gov.uk and a member of the Early Years Inclusion and Childcare Service will be happy to assist.
