Crèches provide short periods of care for children on a casual basis. These usually run alongside an activity where the parents or caregivers are on the same premises or in the same building.

A crèche is usually provided to support a parent to undertake an activity, such as training or an exercise group, whilst their children remain on the premises. Crèche staff will ensure children have access to a range of toys and games, however parents can be called upon if needed.

Dependent on how long the session is being offered and where the Crèche can be registered with Ofsted or run independently.
