Pre Schools

Please be aware; this is purely a listing service. None of the child carers or their qualifications have been checked out or verified by Hull and East Riding Mumbler. Hull and East Riding Mumbler does not endorse or recommend any of these child carers and parents are required to make their own enquiries and check references. Please see our full terms and conditions

Contact us here if you are a nursery, preschool, childminder or nanny and would like to be included in this listing.

Childcare Options: 

Private Day Nurseries are OFSTED registered and offer sessional care from 3 months to 5 years. They are usually open from 7.30am to 6pm although some may do extended hours and are open throughout the year (except public holidays).

Pre-Schools are OFSTED registered and offer sessional care from the age of 2 to 5. They often work in term-time only and in most cases offer 15 hours funded provision for 3 and 4 year olds (you can pay for more sessions). These are often but not always attached to a school, although attendance does not guarantee a place at the primary school.

Registered Childminders are OFSTED regulated childcare professionals who look after children in their own home. They are usually flexible and may be able to offer school drop offs and pick ups. Hours will vary however most will do at least 8.30am-5.30pm.

Nannies. These carers are not necessarily OFSTED registered and look after children in their own home. Prices and experience varies greatly so do your research and get recommendations.
