Childcare Apprenticeship-Sandfield Park

Sandfield Park nursery offer children a homely, friendly, happy, safe environment for children to learn and play in. As we have such a small number of children we feel that we are able to offer an alternative type of care for parents who would prefer a more personal setting.

We provide high quality childcare for up to 25 children per day, aged between 3 months to 4 years.

The Nursery is located in a quiet residential area and set back away from the road. It is a single storey unit with an open plan layout, which is beneficial to the children as they become familiar with all members of staff and the other children.
