'Life Long Learning'

Children develop hugely in their early years and cover many milestones, more so than in the rest of their lives.
At Green Wellie we aim to give our children the very best possible start, proof can be found in our families testimonials.
Families, siblings and their friends have joined us through many years of recommendations.
In our last Ofsted inspection, the Inspector said: ‘If l were a child l would really like to play here’.
Quality, enthusiasm, care and passion are embedded in our ethos and at the heart of everything we do.

  • Questionnaire: How would you describe us; 'A friendly and fun home from home environment, where the children are nurtured and enjoy learning and playing together. We find all the staff to be warm and friendly and committed to their role and the children (office staff included) You are all wonderful (but a special mention should go to, Faye, Rachel & Reece).


  • One thing that l find makes Green Wellie stand out from other settings is the personal interaction staff have with parents during pick up. To hear little things your children have done or said from the staff makes such a huge difference to the confidence l have that the team know my child so well and is key to the great relationships between staff and parents. This is why l recommend Green Wellie to anyone for childcare.


  • Marie is my sons key worker and we think she is fabulous. her attention to our sons needs is wonderful and he clearly feels very safe with her. I value the time all staff take to talk through his achievements and any areas of note. Jaz, Kayla, Rachel and Jemma are all excellent, and as a parent, leaving your child with staff who clearly care for your child so well is so lovely.
