I'm looking at retraining to go back to work. This would involve a years college course at first only one afternoon a week however due to travelling times I would need childcare for a bit longer but not a full day. I've realised that other asking if people accept the me2 funding I've not a clue what else I should/need to ask. Can anyone advice me here please? Thank you.

What childcare will you be visiting? How old is your child?

I'm looking at all types right now and when she starts she'll be 27 months.

Menu - do they provide food or will you?
Nappies- who provides? Potty training policy?
Extra hours/ days available in case you have studying or extra classes?
Fees? When will they need paying? Deposits? Methods of payment accepted?
Ratios/ staff turnover?
Outings/ activities?
Holiday notice and payment?
Sickness policy?
Settling in sessions?
