SEVERAL WAYS IN WHICH PARENTS AND CARERS CAN CONTINUE TO ACCESS CHILDCARE IN TIER 4 AREAS:

Several ways in which parents and carers can continue to a access childcare in Tier 4 areas:
Nannies will continue to provide services, including in the home.
Early years settings including childminders remain open, and you can continue to use these as normal.
You can access other childcare activities (including wraparound care) where reasonably necessary to enable parents to work, seek work, attend education or training.
A childcare bubble is where one household links with one other household to provide informal childcare to anyone under 14. All adults in both households must agree to this arrangement. ‘Informal’ childcare means it is unpaid and unregistered.
Members of either household can provide childcare in a home or public place. This includes overnight care.
You can only have one childcare bubble with one other household. This means no household should be part of more than one childcare bubble.
You can only use a childcare bubble for childcare. You cannot use a childcare bubble to mix with another household for other reasons.
If you form a childcare bubble, it’s best if this is with a household who live locally. This will help prevent the virus spreading from an area where more people are infected.
