Welcome to WASPs

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

I find it difficult to believe that in November this year WASPs will be celebrating it's 25th anniversary. All those years ago I was given the task of setting up and opening a childcare facility in our community and on the 26th November 1992 I opened the doors of WASPs to just 3 children. The club grew very quickly and we expanded our service to provide a Holiday club and closely followed this with our Breakfast club. During those years we have gone from strength to strength to where we are today caring for over 100 children from nearly 60 families in our community.

We continue to be a community based organisation run and administered on a not-for-profit basis. Our outstanding childcare team offers excellent and affordable childcare to the families from both our village schools. Based at Beech Hyde Nursery we enable parents to go to work with the peace of mind that their children are safe, happy and above all are having fun.

I am very proud of our reputation in the community and we continue to work to the highest of standards; this was evident in our recent GOOD Ofsted inspection. I hope that we will be able to help you with your childcare needs in the future.

Thank you for visiting our website, I hope you found it to be informative and helpful and I look forward to meeting you soon.
