About us

Founded in 2002, our flexible and affordable childcare provision in the heart of Woodford offers full and part-time daycare for children from 3 months to 5 years. We believe in building children's confidence from a young age through fun learning activities and play. 

Our friendly childcare staff would love to give you a tour of our facilities, so why not book a visit? Or call us now on 020 8498 9739 to learn more about our services. 

We also offer a range of additional services including a Holiday Club and After School Club for children 5 years and above. 

A safe and caring environment

We provide a safe, stimulating and happy environment for your child at the most receptive stage of their development. The wide range of activities we offer help children learn, develop, and fulfill their potential in a caring environment.

In addition to our structured and planned daily activities, additional activities include:

  • French;
  • Music;
  • Drama; and
  • iPad sessions.

The children in our care come from a variety of different backgrounds and cultures, and this is reflected in the staff that we recruit. Our dedicated staff are highly experienced and qualified, and have been carefully selected for their genuine love of children.

Each staff member undergoes a thorough DBS check, is qualified in Paediatric First Aid, and each child care room is staffed with a Room Leader who is fully qualified to at least NVQ Level 3.

Opening times

Our standard operating hours are from 7:30am until 6:30pm (7:00pm by special arrangement only, and extra charges apply), 52 weeks of the year. We provide parents with total flexibility of care, and learning for their children.

Free all day parking is available to parents.

Flexible childcare

We accept childcare vouchers.

Funded places available for 2, 3 and 4 year olds – 15 hours and 30 hours per week.

Safety and Security

Entry, exit, and internal daycare rooms in the building are carefully monitored by CCTV cameras. The setting has a video entry phone system for the baby unit and entry to the nursery is via a biometric fingerprint entry system.
