My wife and I recently moved to Lower Clapton and we will be expecting our first child in November. Although not a priority, I have been doing some minor investigation re Nurseries / Day Care Centres in the local Hackney area. This is partly because from some recent conversations and articles I've read - in some parts of London, parents register for admission whilst they are still expecting!

Keeping in mind I live in Hackney, I would appreciate any support feedback on the following:

- When is the optimal time to register your child (i.e. number of months / years before the child starts)?

- Are there any recommended places in the Lower Clapton area?

- Apart from Ofsted ratings, what should a parent consider when choosing a place?

- How can I request visit to a place to meet with staff and visit the premise?

As you can tell, I am very new to this and am hoping to be prepared as much as possible. Any feedback welcome and thanks in advance.

Hello Mums of Infants and Toddlers,

I wonder if I could get your opinion on this. Your input will be very much appreciated.

I am working on an MSc dissertation project at the University of Warwick, testing parental day-care concerns and extracurricular club enrolment for children ages 0-5 in the UK.

To aid in data collection for this research, I have put together a survey, which is open to all parents with children ages 0-5 in the UK. The survey is anonymous and confidential, and will take only 10 minutes of your time.

I will really appreciate it if you could fill out this survey if the age-group applies to any of your children.

Please see below the link to the survey

Finally, please contact me at if you have any questions or concerns regarding my request.

Your help will be very much appreciated.

Warm regards,
