Based in the beautiful rural village of Bosley, Bobkins is a warm, welcoming, secure environment designed to nurture your child and bring out the best in him or her. Our aim is to build confidence and self esteem levels whilst preparing for entry into school. We want your child to be happy, settled and thoroughly enjoy the Pre-School learning experience. Feel free to ring, arrange a visit and come down and play with us for a while.
We have 16 places for Pre-School children ages 2 - 5 years. We are open from 8.45am to 3.15pm, five days a week, during term time only, offering 2, three hour sessions and a lunch club. Breakfast club is also available from 8.15 - 8.45am. We also hold a Stay and Play session every Thursday afternoon from 1 - 3pm, with a drink and snack provided.
All staff hold current, enhanced CRB/ DBS checks, Paediatric first aid and food hygiene certificates and have regular training in safeguarding.
