We are looking for a childcare provider to operate a setting from the premises that is of high quality, self-sustaining and offers affordable childcare services tailored to the needs of the local community.

The building also benefits from office space which may be of interest to anyone wanting a headquarters location, that could offer a training suite/small conference space, a flexible childcare area and the potential to offer other family and community services.

The successful childcare provider will have a proven track record of delivering the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) at an Ofsted good or outstanding level and be able to demonstrate their experience of achieving high quality inspection outcomes and their commitment to high quality staff development to ensure good outcomes for children.

The provision is required to offer a full range of inclusive childcare services for children aged 2-4 years and will provide Early Years Education (EYE) universal (15 hours) for 2, 3 and 4 year olds and extended (30 hours) funded places for working parents who meet criteria for the government's 30 hours childcare offer. The provision could offer a full range of childcare services for children aged 0-8 years, depending on the Ofsted registration. The availability of the premises will be all year-round allowing childcare to operate through the school holidays.

The provider will work in partnership with the on site school as well as other local schools and Hampshire County Council's Family Support Service.

Support is available to the new provider from Hampshire County Council's Services for Young Children team.
