A NEW way to find childcare has been launched by Essex County Council.
The online find a childcare provider service has details of more than 2,600 early years and childcare providers, including pre-schools, nurseries, out of school provision and childminders.
Searchers can also look for providers in their area, type of childcare, and get help with setting up payments.
- The service is available on the Essex County Council website. Parents can still phone the Family Information Service on 0800 055 6874.
