Day Nurseries provide full day care and education for children from as young as six weeks to pre-school five year olds. Day Nurseries can be privately run, community, council or workplace services. However, they must all be registered and regularly inspected by the CSSIW, and must comply with strict guidelines on staff/children ratios. Staff must have, or be working towards, the relevant qualifications in childcare.

Most nurseries are open from Monday to Friday generally from 8am to 6pm, and some provide a pick up and drop off service providing wrap-a-round care for school age children.
