i tried the preschool alliance website but that didn't have many, i'm sure there are more nearby. then i tried the LA website, but i can only select 'nursery' on their options and not specifically preschool, so it brings up loads of private settings. is there another place i can get a list? thanks

If there's a family information service at your local council, give them a xall to see if they can filter list.

I think it's also possible to search through OFSTED'S website.

I just googled to see where mine were, and rang a few local schools that I thought may have a preschool.
Local council website maybe?

Try also day nurseries.co.UK
Searching through ofsted reports is ahood way as you will get allswttongs that ate registered
Try searching for reports for your postcode

If you type 'Family Information Service' into google, then it gives them all, listed by County.
A FIS should have all registered groups known to it.
Another place to ask would be your local CC - they should know what's about in your locality.

Thanks all I found lists on both of the local Family information services near me. Many thanks!
