We have well-qualified childcare teams who provide safe and stimulating learning environments where children can develop and grow.
Our childcare teams provide a wide range of activities for children to explore. All activities and resources are age appropriate and our nurseries have specific areas of learning for children to gain different skills.
Our childcare settings welcome all children. We believe in the right for all children to be educated and develop to their full potential alongside each other. Wherever possible we will try to accommodate the individual needs of your child.
Our childcare team will assess your child’s needs, making referral to other agencies if appropriate and develop a support programme which will be carefully managed at every stage.
Places are limited so you should apply as early as possible.
For details on fees, how to apply for a childcare place, or to get help with childcare costs, please contact the College childcare settings below directly.
