About Us 

Kiddiwinks is a well-established home-from-home private day nursery and pre-school situated in a quiet and easily accessible location just off Scalby Road, Scarborough. Established in 1998, we care for children from birth to 5 years of age, in an intimate and loving atmosphere with space for just 6 babies and 30 pre-school children. We have been in our present location since 2017. 
Our fully qualified and loyal staff are trained to degree level Early Years Professional Status and are totally committed to providing a safe, loving and stimulating environment which caters for your child’s every need. 

Our Ethos 

At Kiddiwinks all children are treated individually and are cared for in conjunction with the wishes of their parents or guardians. Our ethos is reflected in the following themes of the Early Years Foundation Stage: 
Every child is unique. 
Positive relationships between children, parents/carers and staff support learning. 
The learning environment should be enabling. 
Learning and development are supported through play, exploration and creativity. 

Free Funded Childcare Places Also, 30 hour funding subject to criteria for 3 year olds
