National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) is the national charity and membership association for children's nurseries across the UK. Our mission is clear - to support the delivery of quality care and early learning in nurseries for the benefit of children and their families.
NDNA works in partnership with local authorities across the UK to develop bespoke, cost-effective solutions to local childcare issues - NDNA Solutions. We believe that by working together we can meet the challenges of this changing childcare market and deliver positive outcomes for children and families.
Our NDNA Solutions service is tailored to the individual needs of your local authority area and is designed to give you good value for money. Through our knowledge and experience of the childcare sector, and our work with the Department for Education and the Welsh Government, we understand both the challenges that childcare providers face and the responsibilities facing local authorities as market managers.
