A nationwide network of childcarers for key workers is available now

At Bright Horizons we spend our time helping working parents and their employers make work+family  work. We provide care solutions, be they long term in our nursery network  or Back-Up Care for individuals in emergencies or employer subsidised care, through our unique nationwide network of Nurseries, Nannies, Childminders and School Holiday Clubs.

Our nurseries in key locations are remaining open. Places are available immediately and we are waiving the registration fee for key workers. Click to find out more.

When the world is normal we charge a booking fee to cover the access fee to our service, during the extraordinary time of the lockdown period we are reducing this fee to a minimal 5% of the cost of care to make our childcare more accessible to key workers.

The currently available network includes 100s of nurseries (Both Bright Horizons and other providers), childminders and in-home nannies. Were adding other childcare providers on an on-going basis as their availability status changes.


We source, select and vet the best nannies and access only those nurseries and childminders who are flexible and good enough to accept last-minute bookings and deliver the standard of care we require. Having reduced our booking fees, nearly all of the fees collected end up in the hands of the providers.

If you think our Nurseries or Emergency Childcare might be helpful to your keyworkers, please do share these links with them and wed be delighted to help.
