Welcome to SeeSaw 1, Wingfield Road

Seesaw 1 is situated in a large Victorian house and has been open since 1988. It has extensive gardens with a small orchard.

Dressing up at Seesaw 1

On starting nursery, parents are asked to provide all relevant personal details, sign a contract of terms and conditions and familiarise themselves with our policies.   

The nursery accommodates 40 children ranging from 9 months to 10 years old. The after-school club meet in the basement, the tiny tots on the ground floor and the pre-school on the first floor.

Although the nursery is open 50 weeks a year, children can attend school term time only and no retainer fee is charged.

Similarly, children can attend from 8am to 6pm or for part time hours.  We take children who want to attend for government entitlement only, for 2, 3 and 4 year olds.  Some parents can also access up to 30 funded hours a week, although we offer a maximum of 26 hours a week but over 48 weeks of the year. Eligibility criteria can be discussed with us or through HMRC.  We are also in receipt of the pupil premium and workplace vouchers.

Children are given drinks and snacks throughout the day, which may include wholemeal bread, milk, fruit, raisins etc. We cook lunches and tea for children or they can bring a packed lunch box. We have a healthy eating policy! 

We welcome parents to stay and settle their children before they leave them.  This can be useful in the early days.  We also have open days, outings, celebrations, etc that we hope parents will participate in.
