We provide an array of comprehensive educational support services, encompassing a day nursery and out-of-school program, aimed at assisting parents and guardians in effectively balancing their commitments.

Day Nursery

Early Years @ Shape is a private nursery and pre-school, run by a qualified team of Early Years Practitioners and Educators.

Across many years of developing Shape, managers and practitioners have been working together to embed an inspiring approach to supporting young children’s learning and development. Through this they strive towards delivering the same principles as the Reggio Emelia educational philosophy. An ethos focused on the educator, the child, and the environment working cohesively to reinforce the child’s understanding.

Ofsted Report – Please see our latest OFSTED Report here.

Our Ofsted-accredited Out of School Club operates five days a week throughout term time, with the explicit mission of delivering exceptional pre and post-school care for children aged between 5 and 11 years.

In a secure and nurturing setting, we create an environment that fosters safety, and creativity, nurturing children’s social interactions, and participation in an array of engaging activities such as crafts, music, films, sports, and computer games, all under the vigilant supervision of our dedicated and extensively trained staff.

As part of our comprehensive services, children have the opportunity to relish a wholesome breakfast comprising cereals, toast, and fruit juice, or indulge in a nutritious after-school snack, all seamlessly incorporated into our offerings without any additional charge.

Our Breakfast Club commences at 7:30 am, accommodating early arrivals, and guarantees a nourishing breakfast for all attendees arriving before 8:20am.

Our After School Club welcomes children from 3:30 pm each day, providing a light and nutritious evening snack around 4 pm, enriching the after-school experience.
