Disabled Children’s Access to Childcare (DCATCH)

Disabled Children’s Access to Childcare (DCATCH)

Nottinghamshire County Council supports the inclusion of disabled children and young people in mainstream childcare settings wherever possible. To this end, pre-schools, day nurseries, childminders, out-of-school and holiday clubs providing services for children and young people with disabilities can apply for financial support to help meet the additional needs of these children and young people attending their settings.

However, a small number of disabled children and young people are unable to access group childcare. Nottinghamshire County Council aims to meet the childcare needs of these children and their families through Individual Home Based Packages of childcare which, for school age children will wrap around their education and reflect normal school hours.
