Bristol Association for Neighbourhood Daycare Ltd

BAND is an umbrella organisation which supports and develops childcare provision in and around Bristol. We provide services to childcare providers, people working with children, families and employers. As well as working locally, BAND also plays an active role in national initiatives in the fields of childcare, play provision and working parents' issues, working closely with key agencies. Our role continues to expand as childcare provision increases and we act in an advisory capacity for many bodies, both locally and nationally.
