Based in the picturesque village of Mattishall and established in 1994, Rockinghorse provides OFSTED registered childcare for babies and preschool children aged between 3 months and 5 years. We also provide additional facilities for school-age children over 4 years in the form of ‘Stallions’ our Breakfast,After-School and Holiday Club.
Rockinghorse is situated in a fully adapted barn conversion with a generous area at the front of the premises for off-road parking. At the rear of the barn there is a large paved and grassed area with a variety of trees and hedges. This area is securely fenced and surrounded by natural foliage backing onto open fields and woodland. The tranquil, rural setting and large outdoor area provide children with the opportunity to learn and develop through play and experiences in an enabling environment.
Inside the building Rockinghorse is able to offer an entrance/cloakroom area which is spacious enough to provide the facility for prams/buggies to be brought inside as parents/carers prepare to leave their children at nursery. There is also a dedicated office, disabled toilet/shower room, baby room, cot room, children’s washroom, nursery room with quiet area/rest room, kitchen for meal/snack preparation, storeroom and IT/games room.
We are registered to care for up to 28 children at any one time. Rockinghorse Daycare is, therefore, able to provide a cosy homely environment that delivers a high quality of care to all children and families that attend.
