Carousel Childcare has been established for over 35 years.
The building is in the grounds of St. Peter’s C of E primary school Budleigh Salterton. Carousel is fully registered with OFSTED.
We take every child’s unique qualities into account when planning their day. But as well as being unique and individual your child is changing and developing all the time, so what he or she needs or is interested in today may well be different tomorrow or in a few weeks.
From the moment they are born children are learning and exploring their world – it is after all a fascinating journey.
A journey, where we help to guide and develop their skills here at Carousel, with trained and passionate staff. We put your child in the heart of everything we do – observing, reflecting, planning activities and making learning fun in order to support your child at every stage.
We provide a stimulating environment, where your child will have the freedom to explore and investigate, have opportunities to play alone or with others and have the security and support to realise their full potential.
We recognise the importance of supporting your child’s personal social and emotional development.
With an open plan layout, children are able to move freely between indoor and outdoor secured areas. We have set up learning areas in our building to promote children’s independence, helping them develop their visual learning and sensory experiences like painting/ clay modeling/ water play/ dressing up.
We work hard with communication through musical instruments, rhyming sessions, singing, listening to different musical genre and encouraging natural dance to rhythm of the music.
We encourage daily outdoor play with balance bikes/ trikes / mini micro scooters and climbing frames. We also plan outings, where children can experience going to the library, park and also parent child outings are incorporated on a frequent level.
We are happy to answer any questions you may have but most importantly why don’t you come and visit us. We do taster sessions, drop in sessions, meet and greet.
We hope to see you soon. All contact details are located under the contact tab at the top of the page.
