 Skallywags is a well established children’s day nursery, our small size and family focus allowing more personal care for your child.

We are registered with Ofsted to provide care for children aged 3 months to 8 years for 51 weeks each year. Open from 7.45 am til 6 pm with meals and snacks included.

Skallywags have funded places for children aged 2, 3 and 4 years and offer an after school activity club.

We aim to provide a friendly, loving, home from home environment, where children feel safe, secure and nurtured. In an outstanding setting for your child to have fun and grow, and to offer them the best possible start in early years education.

Here's what our parents have to say:

''We have tried numerous settings but the warm, homely, stimulating environment here is outstanding. The staff are all fully aware of the Early Years curriculum so I know my daughters will be well prepared for school and developing appropriately. The staff are all friendly, have a great sense of humour and know the children well. I can't rate it enough!'' - Alix

''Skallywags has such a great relationship with the children and families that go there, they become more like family than a nursery. I also love the way they teach the children through play, my daughter is always coming out with new things she's learnt there.'' - Georgina

''Our daughter gets so excited when I tell her she is going to nursery this afternoon. When I say it's Skallywags day she says she's going to do painting and play in the garden. She is comfortable enough to ask to go on the potty which reassures me that she has every confidence in the staff who look after her. I look forward to Skallywags days too as I know she is learning and having fun in a safe environment.'' - Debra

We had our  Ofsted inspection in October 2012 with excellent results. We were awarded a Good rating throughout, with particularly positive references to the attentive, warm and caring environment, where children's needs are consistently met to a very high standard.  It was recognised that all the staff have developed excellent relationships with all children, allowing care to be provided that strongly benefits their individual learning and development.

A key strength highlighted involved the quality of teaching techniques, with staff demonstrating high expectations as they enthuse, engage and motivate children.
Our nursery environment was described as attractive and stimulating, providing a wide range of good quality resources, inside and out.
