Our child care centre, situated in its own premises on the College grounds, offers quality childcare. Starting Point has just undergone a scheme of outdoor enrichment including the introduction of a ‘mud kitchen’ and Pirate Ship. Children of students and staff of the College and of the general public are all welcome. We provide a warm, secure and happy environment to encourage all aspects of the children’s development in line with the Early Years Foundation Scheme. Staff can also join the College’s child care voucher scheme through Computershare Voucher. Services please visit www.computersharevoucherservices.com/Pages/home.aspx. This is a salary sacrifice scheme and therefore there are tax savings.
