Welcome to Poppies Child Care

Ofsted rated OUTSTANDING

Poppies Child Care is situated on the outskirts of Workington in Lillyhall West Cumbria and is a private day nursery facility owned and managed
by Adele Williams and her team of friendly, approachable staff.

We run a fun, friendly, professional child care services for children from 3 months to 8 years designed to meet the needs of families wishing to extend
their child's social and educational development; with all-inclusive packages, holiday clubs and toddler sessions available throughout the year

Poppies Child Care is organised with imagination and care to ensure that your child will feel secure, valued and confident within their surroundings
Our aim is to develop a sense of achievement and confidence within your child, through learning experiences which are
both pleasurable and rewarding whatever their age and ability

Play, Learn and Grow Together

Our slogan is 'Play, learn and grow together' because we believe every child should have the opportunity to learn through play which is tailored specifically to their individual needs, interests and abilities

Since opening in August 2015 Poppies Child Care has established an environment where every child and their family feel safe, happy and confident; a haven for children safely created to enhance their growth and holistic development needs. The nursery is made up of three key areas, firstly 'Baby Poppies’, our baby room where care is provided for babies aged from 3 months to 2 years, secondly 'Little Poppies', our toddler room where care is provided for children aged from 18 months to 3 years. This room also provided funded education for eligible two years. Thirdly is our pre-school provision where we provided funded education and care for children aged 3-4 years. We are also very fortunate to have a large outdoor learning area providing ample opportunities for all children to play and explore together in the fresh air.

The beauty of the nursery lies in our flexibility to provide integrated education and care through full and part time places; giving support to both working parents and families who may only require part time sessions as well as the provision of 'Bizzy Buddiez' holiday club for children age 4 to 8 years and 'Poppy Tots' parent and toddler sessions for babies and tiny tots during the school holiday periods
