Whilst you enjoy the centre’s facilities, why not leave your child in our well-equipped Ofsted registered crèche. Our qualified and experienced staff provide quality care and enjoyable learning experiences for babies and children under 8 years old. This is provided in a safe, stimulating and caring environment.

We aim to promote and encourage all areas of your child’s development, with a varied range of play-based activities, which are investigative, sensory, imaginative, creative and constructive.

We welcome visits from parents to view the crèche, talk about their child’s particular needs
and meet the staff.
