The purpose of our service is to provide a full day care facility for children aged from one year to 11 years. We open 51 weeks per year and daily from 7:45am-6pm, Monday to Friday. We have capacity to cater for 70 children at any one time. This service is a community-based facility operated by a Board of Directors

Our Aim

Our aim is to provide the highest quality of childcare available to the community.  Everything from our early learning programmes to our nutritional menus is designed to provide the best possible care for your child, in a safe and loving environment.

We constantly re-evaluate our services to ensure that we offer parents and children a standard of childcare that is second to none, giving you the comfort of knowing that there are policies and procedures in place to protect your child while they are in our care.

Most importantly, this professionalism goes hand in hand with a caring approach that ensures a warm, loving, ‘home-from-home’ environment, where each child is treated with respect and is valued as an individual, as we help them on their journey of growing, playing and learning.

We strive to provide:

Care – of the highest quality by trained, experienced, dedicated carers
Healthy eating – tasty, high quality nutrition, freshly cooked each day
Independence – helping your child become independent and make new friends
Learning – a full curriculum of education for all ages in our care
Development – of their motor, social, physical, and language skills
Communication – structured daily feedback, and listening to you and your child
Affection – an atmosphere of genuine warmth and care for each child
Respect – for your child as an individual with their own personality and needs
Enjoyment – lots of toys, games, music, play, laughter and fun!
