Child Care Norwich


Please be aware; this is purely a listing service. None of the child carers or their qualifications have been checked out or verified by Norwich Mumbler. Norwich Mumbler does not endorse or recommend any of these child carers and parents are required to make their own enquiries and check references. Please see our full terms and conditionsContact us here if you are a nursery, preschool, childminder, nanny or babysitter and would like to be included in this listing.

Childcare Options: 

Private Day Nurseries. These are OFSTED registered privately run nurseries which usually offer a variety of different sessions. Usually they are open from 8am to 6pm although some may do extended hours, and are open throughout the year other than public holidays.

Pre-Schools usually offer sessional care for children from the age of 2 to 5. They often work only in term-time, and in most cases offer funded provision for 3 and 4 year olds. They will be OFSTED registered and you can usual pay for top up sessions if you need more than the funded sessions. These are often but not always attached to a pre-school although attendance does not guarantee a place at the primary school.

Registered Childminders These are OFSTED regulated childcare professionals who look after children in their own home. They are usually flexible and may be able to offer school drop offs and pick ups. Hours will vary however most will do at least 8.30am-5.30pm.

Nannies & Baby Sitters. These carers are not necessarily OFSTED registered and would look after your children in your own home. Prices and experience varies greatly so do your research and get recommendations from people that you know well.

School Lane Pre-school

School Lane Pre-School, School Lane, NR7 8TR

School Lane Pre-School operates in modern, fully-accessible purpose-built premises at The Diamond Centre in Sprowston.  We have two open-plan activity rooms, a secure, enclosed outdoor play area and a kitchen with a recent five-star food hygiene rating.  We opened a new extension in 2016, increasing our capacity to 48 children, and hence we currently have places available immediately.  Funded places are available for 3- and 4-year-olds and eligible 2-year-olds.  We run ten 3-hour sessions a week from 9:00am to 3:00pm, Mondays to Fridays.

At School Lane Pre-School we endeavour to create an atmosphere where the child feels happy and secure within a friendly environment. When a child feels happy and secure they are ready to learn and for a child, playing is learning.  Children are given the opportunity and are encouraged to experience many activities in all areas of the Early Years Foundation stage. Your child will learn a lot from playing, especially if they are happy in the group.

Whatever a child creates, it is the doing that provides them with both pleasure and fun.  Please get in touch to arrange a visit and join us for a session where you can have hands-on experience.
