Welcome to Bridgwater & Taunton College Childcare Centre

We know that making the decision about childcare is a very difficult one; you only want the best - and so do we.

The Childcare Centre is open to the general public and the children of students and staff, for children from four months to five years. There is also a Holiday Play Scheme for children up to eight years old. We are open from 8am - 5.30pm Monday to Friday, all year round (except Bank Holidays, two weeks at Christmas and specified dates for staff training).

We have a purpose built Childcare Centre opened in 2001. One of the key features being our extensive outdoor area with a beach digging area and water stream for playing and paddling in, you can watch a virtual tour here. The main building consists of a large open plan playroom, which is divided for different age groups, with integral bathroom facilities. There are two adjoining baby rooms, a sensory room and a creative project room. There is also a large dining room, meeting rooms for parents and kitchen facilities.

We pride ourselves in offering flexible childcare to suit the needs of our parents. We do not charge in sessions, we charge by the half hour to suit parent's childcare needs. We do not make a charge for retaining a term time place. For new children we offer a number of settling in sessions with their Keyperson so they are confident when starting in the Centre. These sessions can vary as each child is unique, we suggest a minimum of four visits.

Please take a look around the website; for further details, to enquire about the availability of places, request application forms or to arrange a tour, please contact us.
