The Playroom

The Playroom Nursery & Pre-School provides home-based early education and childcare for children from 0-5 years. We also provide a childcare service for school-aged children who are home-educated.

We have been practising as Ofsted registered childminders since 2001 and were established as a registered pre-school and nursery in 2011. We continue to provide quality childcare and education in a homely setting overlooking the sea.

We have developed strong links with the community and regularly utilise outdoor environments to enrich children's experiences. We also have well-established links with local schools to prepare children for their transition to "Big School"!

"Our mission is to create a safe, nurturing and inspiring environment in which children feel safe to explore the world using their natural curiosity and can express their creativity with the support and guidance of highly qualified and self-reflective practitioners. We aim to ensure that every child in our care achieves their full potential and that parents feel free to engage with the setting and are given thorough updates about their child's well-being and development."
