Rabbit Warren Childcare is now Ofsted rated OUTSTANDING. we aim to provide high quality childcare within a home environment. We educate children from birth to five years old and focus on all seven areas of the Early Years Curriculum. This is taught in a nurturing, safe environment that encourages children to play and have fun. The children will be taught by an early years teacher that is also an OFSTED registered childminder so we focus on the children’s interests to allow learning to happen naturally. In addition we care for children up to the age of eighteen years old. We are located on the database for PACEY registered and insured (Professional Association of Childcare and Early Years).
Rabbit Warren Childcare works closely with parents and carers to ensure all children’s needs are met as we understand you will always be the child’s first educator and know your child best. We plan adult-led and child-led activities then observe children so together we can work out their next steps of learning. Just to give you added reassurance there will always be a paediatric first aider with the children.
We also offer breakfast, afterschool and holiday clubs. For the older children we focus on them learning in a fun way, through projects that the children get to choose and explore.
We understand fresh air, exercise and learning by seeing is important for all ages which is why we have a garden on site and take the children out daily. This could be to the meadows, libraries, supermarkets, messy play groups, parks, children centres and woods.
Every day is different at Rabbit Warren Childcare. It could be mark making with oats, water play looking at floating and sinking, story time listening to a classic Disney book, playdough with numbers, making dens in the woods, riding scooters, climbing frames in the park, socialising in groups, learning about different celebrations an so many activities it’s impossible to list them all.
Rabbit Warren Childcare has two rabbits called Sweep and Athena they are waiting to meet you all. Here we teach children about care, confidence, social skills and reasonability. We look forward to meeting you all.

Both my girls (5 and 3yo) love spending time with Sally and ask her to come back all the time. There are plenty of activities to do and they are very happy. Would highly recommend.
