run by Lisa Quested who has almost 30 years of childcare experience,

work in very close partnership with the schools to ensure the
standard of care we offer to children is the best it can possibly be.
We pride ourselves on our excellent partnerships with the school and
with our parents. We constantly reflect on our practice and seek the
views of the children, parents and staff of the school in order to
enhance the service that we offer.

happens every day
Orchard Childcare we believe that the child is it at the centre of
everything we do and therefore our planning for activities, themes,
trips and resources begins with them; no two days look the same.
Alongside the wide range of art and craft materials, books, games,
construction, role play, drama, songs, music, outings and outdoor
play that are offered to the children everyday there is the
opportunity to plan moment by moment or respond to children's
individual interests to provide them with activities that will be
both fun and inspirational. The close partnerships with the school
allow us to extend on the wonderful themes that the children are
engrossed in at the school.
