Bridgwater & Taunton College’s Childcare Centre provides a warm, welcoming, and engaging environment for children of staff, students and the general public. Located at the College’s Bridgwater Centre in Bath Road, the Centre cares for children from four months to five years old, and children up to the age of eight during Holiday Play Schemes.
The Childcare Centre is purpose-built, and one of its key features is its extensive, inspirational outdoor garden, with a beach digging area and water stream for playing and paddling in, where children benefit from outside learning in a safe and secure space. The main building offers a large open plan playroom divided according to age, two adjoining baby rooms, a sensory room and a creative project room. The building also offers a large dining room, meeting rooms for parents, and kitchen facilities.
The Childcare Centre proudly provides flexible childcare and charges by the half hour to suit parents and caregivers' needs.There is no charge for retaining a term time place. A number of settling-in sessions with their Key Person are offered to new children in order to familiarise them with their new surroundings.
Nutritionally balanced and healthy meals are provided every day using fresh ingredients, to give children the energy to enjoy their busy day at the Centre.
In addition to these facilities, the Childcare Centre has a designated area for Forest School which is provided as part of its outdoor provision. Forest School encourages children in their personal, social and emotional development, and supports their understanding of how to risk assess their play, developing a wonderful appreciation of the outdoor environment as an abundant resource for learning.
