A new website launched by Hertfordshire County Council will help parents to find the right childcare.


The Hertfordshire Childcare Directory contains information and contact details for thousands of childcare and play providers registered with the Hertfordshire Family Information Service. It can be viewed at www.hertsdirect.org/fis.


The easy-to-use directory gives access to over 2000 Ofsted registered childcare providers including childminders, pre-schools and day nurseries. Users can simply enter their postcode and childcare in the local area will be displayed. It also provides details of out-of-school activities such as holiday and after-school clubs.


The Family Information Service has produced a short film to explain how to start a search for childcare. Visit www.hertsdirect.org/fis to watch the film.


Cabinet Member for Children's Services, Richard Roberts said, We are delighted to be able to launch this innovative internet service. Making the right childcare choices is often difficult and this directory should help to make these tough decisions a great deal simpler, giving parents instant online access to information about registered childcare providers.


The short film is well worth watching as it sums up in just a couple of minutes how to make the most of Hertfordshires Family Information Service which is great news for busy parents who dont have a lot of time on their hands.


The Hertfordshire Family Information Service can also provide information and advice to parents by telephone. Call 0300 123 4052 Monday to Friday 8.30am - 4.30pm
