Children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, and we operate a continuous provision, free flow play system. Our children enjoy playing and exploring outdoors with a range of natural materials. We operate a snack bar system where the children bring their own healthy snack and packed lunch.

We offer high quality childcare for children from the age of two years to school age. We have three rooms specifically tailored for the age of the children within each group. We provide opportunities for mark making, role playing, creativity, construction, using malleable materials, early literacy and mathematical skills.

Our outside area comprises a state of the art climbing frame, a substantial sandpit, mud kitchen, mini beast garden, water play area and an all-weather canopy to ensure access come rain, shine or snow. The Burrow play area offers children exciting challenging opportunities to develop their physical skills and learn about nature.

Here at Clocktower, we believe it is vital for our children’s success, for them to flourish and become confident, independent and social learners for life.

Our strongest asset is our highly qualified staff who are nurturing, engaging and supportive through each stage of a child’s development.


We welcome visits from prospective parents and children. Please feel free to drop into our pre-school, meet the practitioners and children.
