Welcome to Meadow Kindergarten

Meadow Kindergarten provides a spacious environment conveniently located off Whitegate Drive. Meadow Kindergarten prides itself in its secluded location with easy transport links and close proximity to local primary schools.

Meadow Kindergarten, which was purchased in 2009, has undergone a huge refurbishment and now boasts a purpose built Preschool Unit for children aged 3-8 years and a separate building for our young babies and toddlers.

Children now benefit from a secure garden area accessible from both buildings with grass, tarmac and a barked playground. The nursery has a large car park for parents enabling safe access to both buildings.

Meadow Kindergarten also operates an Out of School Club for children aged 4 to 8 years. Children can be taken to and collected from local primary schools such as Stanley School, Baines School, Waterloo School and Hawes Side School.

At Meadow Kindergarten our emphasis is on unrestricted play and exploration.

During your child’s time at Meadow Kindergarten they will be cared for by a team of qualified Nursery Nurses who have each been trained to a high standard. Each child is allocated a Key Worker who will provide care and support to them during their time in each room, giving them stability and reassurance and giving parents confidence in the care their child will receive.

Each room within the Nursery has a specially trained co-ordinator to oversee all areas of development and organisation.

Our aim is to provide your child with valuable experiences and opportunities to explore their environment and develop to their full potential. We firmly believe that children learn best when they are unaware they are being ‘taught’, which is why our planning of activities focuses on ‘hands on’ learning.

Minibus Transport

Childs Play operate a modern fleet of minibuses that assist parents without transport to access our nurseries. The minibuses allow children to be collected from home in a morning and returned at the end of the nursery day. We have found that our minibuses prove to be an invaluable service to working parents, especially when unexpected delays make collecting from nursery difficult! Our minibus simply delivers your child to grandparents/friends etc at short notice. Our fleet of minibuses make it possible for the children to access a wide range of activities such as gymnastics, karate, the library, the park, adventure play areas and many more curricular trips.

Our minibuses are driven by experienced drivers who are CRB checked and escorted by a member of the nursery team.
