About the employer

Beanstalks are committed to providing high quality childcare for children aged 2 to 11, at affordable prices. Beanstalks Childcare began almost 15 years ago when our Directors, parents themselves, discovered they couldn’t find a childcare provision that worked for them. The rest is history and we’ve been going strong for many years now, proudly caring for children across the Sale area. We strive to offer a stimulating and fun environment for your child to flourish in our care. We listen to what our parents and their children desire, and have responded with a comprehensive range of age-appropriate activities.
