The Jersey Child Care Trust was established in 1997 and is registered with the Charity Commission. Putting families first is at the heart of what we do. We help families access the nurture, care and learning they need for children to thrive. We provide information and services to families, policy makers, child care providers and other professionals.
We know how crucial the early years are for our children – 80% of our brain development happens before the age of three. Through our services and programmes, we make a big difference for children living with disabilities and/or adversity. We enable all children in Jersey to have the best start.
