To achieve our commitment, we will ensure continuous development and improvement of robust safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding amongst our staff and volunteers.

About the employer

Established in 2007, since when all Ofsted reports have rated us ‘Good’, Phoenix Childcare provides a relaxed, happy atmosphere and a stimulating educational environment for your child to explore and enjoy.

We have five separate, age-designated rooms within our sympathetically converted barn. This allows our fully qualified staff to give first-class, age-specific care, taking into account individual needs and the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage and the Development Matters framework.

The children relish venturing out into our
adjoining courtyard garden, which provides lots of safe opportunities to scramble about and have fun. Those old enough also love our Nature School, whilst our setting within the remarkable flora and fauna of the Gaudet Luce golf course provides a feeling of space and calm.
