Welcome to SeeSaw 2, Eastbourne Road

Seesaw 2 is based in an end terraced house, close to the town centre. It is a small nursery with a family atmosphere.

The nursery accommodates up to 30 children which includes a small baby unit and a breakfast and after school club.  We take children and pick them up from Paxcroft  and Bellefield schools. The nursery is open from 8 am to 6 pm 50 weeks of the year.  We offer as much flexibility as possible, enabling children to attend school term time only and government entitlement hours only for 2, 3 and 4 years old up to 15 hours a week.  Some parent can also access up to 30 funded hours a week but this is subject to eligibility criteria.  We offer a maximum of 26 hours a week but over 48 weeks of the year through this scheme. We are also in receipt of work place vouchers and pupil premium.  On starting nursery, parents are asked to provide all relevant personal details, sign a contract of terms and conditions and familiarise themselves with out policies.

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 participate in.
