The nursery is situated in Heysham and provides quality and affordable childcare to the community in which it is situated. It is conveniently situated close to a major bus route
The partnership with parents, carers and anyone else involved with the children is important to us and parents are encouraged to visit and see how their children are progressing. Each child is assigned a key-worker who will always be happy to discuss your child's progress or answer any concerns you may have.


The Playgroup is inspected by OFSTED to ensure that we provide quality care and education.
Our latest inspection was carried out in February 2019 and we were judged as good in all of the 4 key areas.
The inspectors key findings were:


  • Leaders and staff reflect on and evaluate their practice. For example, they carry out audits covering all aspects of safeguarding. They identify areas for improvement and review their policies and procedures as a result.
  • Children with special educational needs and/or disabilities are extremely well supported. Staff build warm and caring relationships with children and their families.
  • Staff manage children's behaviour in appropriate ways. They devise golden rules to ensure children know what is expected of them. Additionally, staff use smiley face cards and 'kind leaves' to help reinforce positive behaviour and support children's personal, social and emotional development. As a result, children's behaviour is good.
  • Leaders involve parents in various ways. For example, they gather their views through questionnaires and 'question of the month'. They invite parents into the nursery for stay-and-play sessions. In addition, staff share information with parents in various ways, including through informal conversations, social media posts and by sending regular newsletters.
  • Parents speak positively about the nursery and the staff team. They say that their children have made good progress and have become more confident, which has prepared them well for starting school.
