  1. What is a Local Authority childcare directory?
    This is a list of childcare providers in your borough. When looking for a childcare provider, families can access this list and contact any childcare providers that are close by and have availability that meets their needs.

  2. Why do I need to register?
    This is a great opportunity for free advertisement. Being present on a variety of websites exposes your Home Nursery to more families seeking childcare.

  3. When can I register?
    After you are officially registered you’ll be able to sign up to the directory.

  4. What is my trading name?

    You may come across this question in the form. Your trading name would be your first name and last name, followed by the phrase 'Koru Kids Home Nursery’. So it would read "First Name Last Name Koru Kids Home Nursery".
