Full day care is care provided at any time (day or night) for children under eight on premises other than domestic premises for more than a total of two hours a day.
Day care providers need to be registered with Ofsted.
Providers must normally register on the Ofsted Early Years Register if they want to care for children from birth to five.
They must register on the compulsory part of the Childcare Register if they want to care for children from five to seven.
If you are looking to set up within the Dudley borough you can contact the childcare strategy team for further information and support via our online form or telephone on 01384 812862.
Dudley's Family Information Service (FIS) can give you information about childcare provision in your area.
