When you enrol with Lifelong Learning we can tell you about childcare options, including crèches during daytime classes and Family Learning courses.

Crèches are open to children aged from six weeks to seven years.

All crèches have qualified staff and follow Ofsted standards.

Register your child

Before you enrol on a course, please contact the Crèche Team for registration and to check that a crèche is available.

Crèches are subject to a minimum number of children attending and places are limited.

A crèche may be merged or closed if enrolments do not reach the minimum number within the first three weeks.


  • £4.17 per session if you are paying a full course fee
  • Free for all Family Learning courses
  • Free to learners where there is a course-specific concession, e.g. English and maths or an Essential Skills Digital Qualification (ESDQ).

If you incur childcare costs related to your attendance on our courses, you may be able to get financial support to meet these costs through the Discretionary Learner Support Fund. Please ask for details at your advice and guidance interview or call into a lifelong learning centre and ask the reception staff.
