We are a small, friendly setting offering a caring, nurturing environment in the country. We aim to provide a homely environment in which each child is valued for themselves and helped to develop to their full potential. We cater for children aged 18 months -5 years and offer funded places for 2,3 and 4 year olds. Esklets delivers the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Our purpose-built classroom is sited within a very large outdoor area. Our garden contains a mud kitchen, digging area, ‘jungle’, raised beds and lawn. The playground contains an ‘all weather sandpit’, junk construction area, sensory area, water play, woodwork, role-play sheds and space to ride bikes and run freely.

We have close links with the local primary schools and the local community.

Our well qualified staff have worked in childcare for many years and have vast experience and knowledge of the profession. Esklets offers diverse and inclusive childcare and staff have undertaken additional training in such things as Makaton signing to help them meet the needs of all the children.

At our last OFSTED inspection in July 2014 we were rated as GOOD with some outstanding areas.

We’re About The Little People…


All our staff have many years’ experience in childcare and are dedicated to providing a happy, stimulating and secure learning environment for your child. Staff are well qualified and keep up to date with training.


Esklets has close links with local schools and other settings. We offer visits to local places such as the fire station, doctors surgery and bakery. We also explore the local area through walks and outings.


Esklets works together with parents who know their child best. Parents are always welcome in our setting and we value their support. Parents are kept regularly updated on their child’s progress and are encouraged to contribute to their child’s leaning journey.


Esklets has a very large outdoor play area including a garden in which we can offer activities to enhance and support the indoor classroom. We operate a ‘freeflow’ system in which children can choose to be outside or inside.
