About Us

Carousel has been providing high quality childcare for 25 years. Jackie and Marilyn opened the nursery in 1994 together with Sam our Officer in Charge.


We operate from a single storey building with off road parking at the front of the premises and a fully enclosed garden at the rear.


Nursery opens Monday to Friday 7.30 - 6.00 excluding Bank Holidays and Christmas week.

Our Areas

Carousel is separated into 4 areas:

  • Baby room 0-2 years
  • Tweeny room 2-3 years
  • Pre School 3-5 years

Security at Carousel is paramount. We have an intercom system at the front entrance which ensures admittance to expected visitors only.


Staff within each room sit with the children during meal times assisting them where necessary but also encouraging independence. Child sized utensils; beakers and plates are provided. Smaller groups are formed to make meal times more family orientated. We aim to make this time relaxing to allow the children to enjoy their meal.


Children are offered cereal and toast on arrival followed by a mid morning snack of fruit, yoghurt or biscuit at 10.30. A cooked lunch is provided for children staying a full day, and wholesome and well balanced meals are freshly cooked daily by 5aday Catering.


Particular attention is given to individual needs and any dietary requirements are catered for. Afternoon break is served at 3.30 and consists of sandwiches, crackers, breadsticks followed by fruit and yoghurt, or alternatively a hot tea


Fresh drinking water is readily available in every room. Sleeps

Cots and beds are available should your little one need a sleep during the day.

Outdoor Play

A substantial fenced area at the rear of the premises has been developed into a multi-purpose playground, with both grass and hard standing for various play activities. Staff participation in outside activities guarantees total supervision.


No child's birthday will pass unnoticed at Carousel, and will be made a special day for them.
