COVID-19 Childcare settings to remain open

The legislation underpinning lockdown restrictions has been published, and guidance has been updated to confirm that early years settings and childminders can remain open, and parents can continue to use these settings as normal.

Parents will be able to access other childcare activities (including wraparound care and some out of school settings) where reasonably necessary to enable parents to work, seek work, attend education or training, or for the purposes of respite care for carers.
