Welcome to the ‘ChildsPlay’ Nursery

Why ChildsPlay Nursery?

ChildsPlay Nursery first opened in May 2008 as a child friendly Cafe, since then it has grown into a thriving business and has expanded into a new building with fantastic facilities. Privately owned, business partners Jo Courtney and Simone Rual saw a gap in the city for something a little different both having extensive working backgrounds within the childcare environment.

What The Parents Say

Our Rooms

All children within ChildsPlay receive the highest quality of care and education. The environment is carefully prepared and organised to involve your child in learning through play, taking into account the curriculum guidelines for the under 5 years of age. The first five years of a child’s life are important and informative years and at ChildsPlay we focus on the individual needs of each child.

The Nursery is divided into four areas of play and works within the framework of ‘Birth to Three Matters‘ for 0 to 3 years old and ‘The Foundation Phase’ for the over 3. We have a themed approach to planning and delivering activities, the children move from room to room utilising all areas of play.
