Since 1996, Creative Learning Childcare has provided families with quality early years education and care. We focus on providing the best environment for our children and we believe in the importance of listening to the voice of the child, their parents and our staff team.
We value and nurture every child individually and offer constant support to all parents in their journey through a new experience from their baby’s first visit to nursery to the day they leave us to go to school, sharing in those precious milestones and achievements along the way.
Children are the most important members of Creative Learning Childcare and we encourage the development of their confidence and independence alongside care and respect for others.
We welcome and value all children, regardless of their ability, race, religion, gender or cultural heritage, and our aim is for each child to fulfil their own potential academically, physically, mentally and socially.
We are proud that our focus on creating the best environment for children has been recognised and praised.
