About us

Colourful Childcare is a privately-owned and managed setting created with passion. We are dedicated to providing an encouraging, stimulating, and challenging environment allowing each child to continually develop and gain new abilities. Our knowledge of children comes from many years of academic education, and several years experience in working with children and young people. We value diversity and promote equality. We understand that each child is different; thus, we always have an individual approach to each and every child. We are happy to work in partnership with parents/carers, as meeting all the individual needs of each child is paramount to us.

We work 48 weeks per year, and we are open from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm. 

We speak English, Polish, and Russian. We have 12 years experience! 

For children aged 18 months to 5 years we offer flexible care from 14 to 50 hours per week.
We also provide care for children over 5 years old during half terms.

We are registered with and inspected by the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (Ofsted).
We are members of the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY).
We are entitled to offer 15 hours and 30 hours of Free Education.
Parents can also get help with childcare costs through Tax Free Childcare.
