Railway Children Elsecar Nursery
Railway children nurseries do not run on a session basis. We have a friendly, flexible approach to meet the needs of you and your children. We charge by the hour so we can fit around your hours of work and shift patterns. We offer different types of contracts to suit each parents needs; as & when required, term time only and 51 week.
We offer wrap-around care to compliment our full day care. Breakfast, after school plus a holiday club is available and we collect and drop off to most of the local schools around us.
Breakfast club is based at our Elsecar setting, and we do offer wrap around cover for those children who's siblings attend.
After School and Holiday Club is based at our Brampton Cortonwood setting in Barnsley. We would collect your child from the local school and transport them down to Brampton to the after school club.
