Welcome to the Pre-school Learning Alliance Choosing Childcare App (England).

Please note: At the moment we can only supply Ofsted reports for pre-schools, nurseries and children’s centres within England. We are currently working with Ofsted (England) to include childminders in a future version of this App.

Searching for a quality childcare group in England has never been easier.
Find your nearest childcare settings, such as nurseries, pre-schools or children’s centres, and access their most recent Ofsted inspection report. These reports provide details about the quality of care, helping you to make an informed decision about the best place for your child.
You’ll also find helpful resources in our Parent Zone, from guidance on choosing the right childcare to advice on ‘settling in’ and top tips for healthy eating.
