Churwell CIC provides a range of childcare and early years education services through its PLAY@Churwell setting.


Churwell CIC: Childcare Services

Our mission is to support children to develop and achieve their potential. Children are life-long learners, are naturally curious and full of knowledge. We strengthen this by providing an enriching environment which challenges and extends learning and development through exploration of the world around us.

We have an outdoor learning area with a den and lots of stimulating activities. We make use of the local environment with regular forest school sessions in the local park and for walks.

Our Caterpillars Room offers 9 places for under 2 year olds and they have direct access to their own garden space. From tummy time to crawling and those all important first steps our team will be there to support your child develop. There are dance & movement sessions and messy play and lots more.

The Ladybirds Room is a large open plan space for the 2-4 years olds and has direct access to the outdoor learning area. We offer lots of enhancement activities to give the children a wide range of experiences at nursery. This includes forest school sessions, music, languages, physical activity and educational workshops. We employ an early years teacher to ensure we give your children the best start possible in their transition to school.

We offer flexible full time or sessional places either term time only or all year round with no minimum day requirement. There are no registration fees. We offer funded 15 hour sessions for eligible 2 year olds and funded 15 or 30 hours of early education for 3-4 year olds. See the Free Early Education page for more information.

We have a nursery chef preparing our meat free menu and helping the children with cooking skills.
