News & Information
Located on the premises of Windmill Primary School, Playmates started in January 1991 and has gone from strength to strength to provide the very best care and education to children aged between 2 years and 5 years of age.
If you are looking for an established and proven child care provider who will treat each child as an individual and can work in partnership with families and parents - then we are the child care facility for you.
We have a close working relationship with the Early Years Team at Windmill Primary School to ensure our children have the knowledge and understanding to confidently enter their Reception Year. We accept children regardless of their parents' final primary school choice and have great relationships with all the local schools.
We offer 'Stay n Play' sessions to all our new children
We strive to give our families lots of opportunities to get involved and regularly share their child's progress with their keyworker. We use an online nursery management system which gives parents and carers direct communication links to their child's keyworker. We find the keyworker system (each member of staff being responsible for a small number of children) enables us to ensure each child is reaching and/or exceeding their recommended targets based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).

Our Staff are a very welcoming and dedicated team, all qualified - with the exception of our apprentice(s) - to at least level 3 in childcare and are valued as our strongest asset. To ensure we keep our staff and offer consistency to our children we offer them opportunities to continue their professional development and ensure their ideas and skills are recognised and rewarded accordingly.
