Cats Whiskers Day Nursery

Cats Whiskers is situated within easy reach of the main routes from Christchurch to Bournemouth and Poole, close to the beach and Shelley Park. The nursery caters for children from birth to 5 years and has a thriving pre-school with strong links to local schools. The large garden provides a lovely natural environment for the children to play and explore outside. The nursery offers opportunities which enable active learning by encouraging children to apply and challenge their existing knowledge, in an atmosphere which values each child. The practitioners are all qualified in Early Years Care and Education. The Early Years Manager is Felicity Mullins. In our most recent Ofsted inspection we were judged as Good.
