International Families

If you have children in the UK and they are aged 5 years and over, they MUST attend school. However if you have children under 5 years and they need to be cared for during the day, there are many private nurseries available in and around the city. Children aged 3-4 yrs are entitled to some free child care at private nurseries see the links below There are also individuals called "child minders" who are availabel to care for your children
