Established in 2001, Play Place Childcare Services Ltd (Play Place) provides early years, nursery, crèche and after school opportunities. Our services are registered and regulated by Ofsted and each setting has a senior management team who are responsible for operational delivery on site. Managers work with staff teams to create a warm, welcoming, and safe environment for children to have fun and learn through play.

In addition to full day care nursery provision, Play Place run after school projects that promote learning and fun for children between the end of the school day and 6.00pm. These services enable working parents to be provided with a full day of childcare and offers the children increased learning and social opportunities. After school projects offer a flexible response to parents who are able to register children for days and hours to suit them. We also offer a pick up service and work with schools that offer their own after school curriculum activities, for example after school sports or dance groups.

Play Place always work in partnership with local agencies, schools, community and church groups. Our settings have an open door approach for families and we want our groups to be a place for the whole family, and where they feel welcomed and accepted. We value the families that we provide a service to and believe that strong partnerships evolve when there is good communications between parents, keyworkers and the staff team.

Each of our settings are individual, with unique qualities, but have the same core values:


  • The children are at the heart of everything we do.

  • All our staff are well trained and experienced - and very enthusiastic!

  • All aspects of the Play Place curriculum are delivered to Ofsted standards.

  • Our fees represent very good value for money.

  • We have lots and lots of fun! Come to visit us to see!
