Welcome to

We present a new concept in childcare dedicated to children and parents.  

The Candystripe concept was born in 2000 with the aim to provide the local community with affordable childcare provision all under one roof. Being local business women and working mums they truly understood and empathized with parents the need for a safe, stimulating, challenging and happy environment in which you can leave your children whether they are 3 months or 16 years old. is built on strong partnerships between all the staff working within the company. 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.
