Need Wraparound Care?

We have a wonderful working relationship with Joeys, a private childcare setting, positioned next door to our own school nursery. Children who require wraparound care, can attend our nursery, and then be 'posted through the door' to Joeys, when our session finishes. This relationship works excellently and ensures the safety and security of your child, whilst maintaining continuity of care.
