About Us

Registered 'GOOD' by Ofsted in July 2019, Thorpe Willoughby Childcare Centre has been operating for almost 50 years, having first been established as Thorpe Willoughby Playgroup. Originally, the Play Group was run from the old village hall and started in 1970.

We are a charity whose main aim is to provide high quality childcare for the children in our lovely Village and surrounding areas.

The Centre has a very professional, dedicated team, who are motivated to care for your children and whose ethos is every child is unique.

At the Centre we work hard to create a child friendly environment and strive to ensure your children have fun and learn.

We plan in the Centre by observing our children and we plan in the moment.

This means our planning is always led by the Children and we provide activities based on their interests and at their level of development.

We assess our children by using an online assessment tool called Tapestry which means you are able to see every observation your child’s Keyworker posts and provides the opportunity to look at photos of your child at play and witness key moments in their development.

We also value you guys as parents and welcome any input you feel you can give us. Be it taking part in fundraisers, concerts, or feeding us information via Tapestry.

Two-year old provision operates in our bungalow annex from 0900 – 1200 Monday to Wednesday during term time and on some afternoons depending on demand.

Care for children aged three and over is provided in the main building between 0730 and 1500.

We are a fully inclusive setting and welcome all children to join our happy setting. We strongly believe that all children should be encouraged to grow and develop in a supportive safe and happy setting. Individual needs should be met and planning and provision built around their interests and talents.

Safeguarding is paramount within the setting and confidentiality is respected at all times.

Contact the office for a Registration of Interest form if you wish to put your child’s name on the waiting list.

We can collect children directly from their classes at Thorpe Willoughby Primary School at the end of the school day and look after them until they’re collected. Pit Stop is open until 6pm and provides a safe environment for children to relax, do their homework and play after school. A light snack is provided at 5pm for those children staying later. Pit stop is charged at £13.50 per session.

We provide a Breakfast Club for children who attend Thorpe Willoughby Primary School. Children can be dropped off from 0730 on school days and are safely delivered to their classes at the start of the school day. A light breakfast of toast and assorted cereals is available. Breakfast Club costs £5.00 per hour.

We provide a holiday club for children aged 4-12 during the Easter, Summer, Christmas and half term holidays. Holiday club operates between 0800 and 1730 and children can be booked in for half or full days.

Children attending can take part in a range of exciting themed activities such as crafts, games and outdoor play.
