As a parent or carer, you know what's best for your child.
The things you and your child do together at home are the most important step in giving them the best start in life.
Care from friends, grandparents and other relatives plays a vital role too.
Early education and childcare can also help your child to get the best start in life, so choosing the right kind of setting for your child is a big decision to make.
This part of the Local Offer is designed to help you make this choice - you can find information about what's on offer locally, help with childcare costs and other support services out there.
