The Wickbourne Playcentre Nursery provides a high standard of physical, emotional, spiritual, social and intellectual care for children through a stimulating and varied programme of play and learning opportunities.

We take up to 60 children from 12 weeks old through to 8 years old and are open 51 weeks of the year. We usually expect children to attend the same sessions each week, but are able to take children during school holidays and for short term care in consultation with staff. We are closed on Bank Holidays.

Please see below for details and prices.


Children will be admitted through a registration system when places become available. The system will be via registration date order and will take into account the child’s date of birth relating to the structure of the Nursery age groups.
