Devon’s Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Local Offer

Childcare and wraparound care

We want to make finding suitable childcare for your child as easy as possible.

Pinpoint Devon is a good place to find childcare providers in your area. It lists providers across the county including early years providers, childminders, after-school clubs and holiday clubs.  

You can also find a list of specialist early years and childcare providers for children and young people with SEND.

Early years provision

Early years provision includes pre-schools, nurseries and nannies. Some providers take children aged 2-5 and some take children aged 0-5.

  • Our early years provision page provides more information on choosing a provider and what to do if you can’t find suitable childcare in your area.
  • Our financial support page offers more information on the different types of funding that are available to help pay for childcare and information about eligibility.

Wraparound care

When your child is school aged you may need additional care outside of school hours to help you work, this is called wraparound care. Most schools will have a breakfast club or after-school club but nannies and childminders can also often provide childcare around the school day.

Use Pinpoint Devon to find more information about childcare available outside of school hours.
