Child’s Play Whitestone

About Whitestone

Whitestone is a tranquil and homely setting, based in the inclusive Whitestone Primary School, tucked away at the top of West Cross, overlooking open country side. 

Here we have our own unit with intercom entrance, our own outside play area and access to the wonderful school grounds, including foundation phase playground and school field. 

Meet the team

At Child's Play at Whitestone, we are blessed with the most amazing team who genuinely love and care for all the children who join us. The majority of our staff are qualified up to the mandatory NVQ Level 3 In Childcare. 

We believe that it is essential for staff to continue with professional development as this ensures your children get the best care possible. Aside from this, our team are happy, enthusiastic, caring, kind, bubbly, a little crazy, (in a good way), and absolutely committed to ensuring your child gets the best care possible.
