Créche facilities provide a time-limited day care option for parents and carers of young children and are mostly used by parents and carers attending education courses or other training. They can also provide parents and carers with the opportunity to take part in social or recreational activities.

The opening hours of the Créche may be flexible to meet the changing needs of parents and carers. Créches which care for children for more than two hours a day will be registered and regularly inspected by the local Health and Social Services Trusts Early Years Team.
