Welcome to Playmates Nurseries! Your child is about to begin their most formative years and we at Playmates hope to provide the best possible start!
We have two beautiful home-away-from-home settings: one at Wilmere Lane, and the other at Hough Green. We see both our nurseries as an extension of your home, where a caring, nurturing and loving environment combined with a fun and stimulating environment can boost your child’s growth and development.
Our enthusiastic and committed staff undergo regular training and are here to inspire your child, encouraging every individual’s interests and needs.
We would love to show you around our nurseries. Please feel free to contact us and arrange to pop in for a visit.
A little bit about us
Our mission is to deliver the highest standards of childcare and early years education, while always striving for continuous improvement.

Accordingly, we offer:
- 2 beautiful home-away-from-home settings
- Safe outdoor gardens for daily adventures
- Nutritious homemade meals made fresh on-site everyday
- Motivated, experienced and enthusiastic staff with advanced qualifications and first aid training
- Online learning journals to encourage parent engagement by sharing observations daily
- Fun with purposeful technology to prepare children for school
- Free Early Years Education Entitlement (15 and 30 hours) for 3-4-year-olds
- Free Early Years Education Entitlement for 2-year-olds subject to eligibility criteria
