Childcare

earlyyearsWe have three pre-school Early Excellence Centres based in Chippenham.

Each centre provides childcare for pre-school children and is run and managed by Graduate Leaders with outstanding expertise in early childhood education.  All of our Early Excellence Centres are staffed by highly trained and well qualified staff who regularly improve their skills and knowledge by undertaking professional training and by carrying out detailed observations of children in order to plan for improved outcomes.

In addition, all of our Early Excellence Centres are fully integrated with our Children’s Centre teams. Families who are fortunate enough to have their children attend an EEC will benefit from all of the Children’s Centre services and staff.
