Childcare Options: 

Private Day Nurseries. These are OFSTED registered privately run nurseries which usually offer a variety of different sessions. Usually they are open from 8am to 6pm although some may do extended hours, and are open throughout the year other than public holidays.

Pre-Schools usually offer sessional care for children from the age of 2 to 5. They often work only in term-time, and in most cases offer funded provision for 3 and 4 year olds. They will be OFSTED registered and you can usual pay for top up sessions if you need more than the funded sessions. These are often but not always attached to a primary although attendance does not guarantee a place at the primary school.

Registered Childminders These are OFSTED regulated childcare professionals who look after children in their own home. They are usually flexible and may be able to offer school drop offs and pick ups. Hours will vary however most will do at least 8.30am-5.30pm.

Nannies & Baby Sitters. These carers are not necessarily OFSTED registered and would look after your children in your own home. Prices and experience varies greatly so do your research and get recommendations from people that you know well.

At Blue Sky Day Nursery we like to offer totally flexible care no matter what your childcare needs!

If you want full time, term time or the occasional day or the odd hour to go to the gym, do some shopping or just to get a hot bath, we will do our best to meet your needs.

We have a fantastic holiday club running from 7:30am – 6 pm, taking children from school age up to 12 years old.
Cost is just £35.50 a day and booking is as flexible as you want.
You can book 1 day or half a day, you don’t need to have come before and you don’t need to come again although we hope you will of course!
Our team are all first aid, safeguarding and food hygiene trained.

We have funded places available for 2, 3 + 4 year olds for eligible children and we also offer creche, day nursery, preschool and wrap around hours.

We have a fantastic team who ‘Promise to care for your child as they would their own’ and this coupled with a delicate mix of adult led and child directed activities makes learning through play educational, exciting, often messy and always fun.

All meals are provided and are cooked on the premises to meet the healthy eating plate menu.

Our lovely nursery mixes colour and light to provide a happy, homely and safe and loving environment with a large well equipped outdoors area that can be enjoyed whatever the weather.

Please get in touch to arrange a visit to meet our amazing team and see our fab nursery for yourself.

We offer free settling in sessions and have spaces available now!
