Welcome to the Childcare Partnership Website

Childcare Partnerships offer information and support to childcare providers, parents and employers. Our aim is to increase the number of childcare places and to ensure high quality affordable childcare for parents across Northern Ireland.

We support parents to access quality childcare through our online childcare search facility, our guide to choosing a quality childcare service and by providing information on reducing childcare costs. We offer a range of support locally to childcare providers including:

  • training;
  • quality improvement;
  • business development;
  • networking support;
  • access to funding e.g. Capital Grants, Small Grants;
  • advice and support on a range of issues.
