Herefordshire Early Years Development & Childcare Partnership (EYDCP)

If you are looking for information about childcare in the area then the Herefordshire Early Years Development & Childcare Partnership (EYDCP) can help you find the answer!

The EYDCP is a confidential service providing free, impartial guidance on the full range of childcare and children’s services for families in Herefordshire.

Situated at the Education Centre in Blackfriars Street (behind the Cattle Market), a reception and resource room with leaflets and useful information for parents is open to the public during office hours (Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm).

Not just childcare is covered - the EYDCP holds information on:

  • the training available if you are interested in a career in childcare - call the EYDCP if you are interested in working with children
  • funding and grants 
  • details of free education sessions at nurseries/childminders for three and four year olds
  • leisure activities for children
  • special needs 
  • local support organisations

And if they don’t know the answer, they'll be able to tell you who does!

Call 01432 261681 or go to the Family Information Service pages
