Grimethorpe Family Centre - Childcare

 Your child's time with us is important to us and we want them to be happy and independant. Our stimulating, safe and caring learning enviroment enables your child's growth and development. 

Children have the opportunity to experience play and exploration on a large scale in our outdoor environment. Also on a weekly basis we go for walks in our local community and have outdoor sessions in our private and secure woodland area. 

We work in partnership with parents to ensure that children's routines are followed and that the structure of the day is child led.  Your child will be a treasured part of a family group led by their key person.

Using the EYFS your child's key person will plan for their interest's and next steps to support their learning and development. We also offer support with applying for FREE childcare.

The nursery provision was graded as Good by OFSTED in the latest insepection.
