Together they strive to provide childcare solutions for the community.

As a customer of Candystripe you can expect to leave your children in a safe, clean and learning environment. Our staff will be knowledgeable and helpful. Ltd's safeguarding policy is stringent and firmly instilled in all the staff and children as paramount to our success.  Ask for details about our safeguarding policies and speak to our safeguarding managers in each setting.  The details of these people will be listed on our notice boards on each site.
