Latest News / Events

“We found the care and attention that both our children received to be very good and the extended hours was a bonus. As the children got older, the holiday club and after school club really helped out.”

Wimborne Parent

“I have found the “The Cottage” to be a friendly, nurturing and educational environment or all three of my children. The Cottage offers a safe and secure setting and the ability for children to run outdoors whilst well protected. They have a close link with St James First School and encourage joint events. I found the attendance for activities at the main school, in my children’s’ final year at The Cottage, enables them to progress seamlessly into St James First School. I utilise both the After School Club and Holliday Club which the older children thoroughly enjoy.”
