Child’s Play 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.
Samantha is the founder of Child’s Play and a mum to three children, she has worked extensively with children from new-born up until 12 years.
She has an NVQ Level 3 In Childcare and Development and has been an invaluable classroom assistant, special educational needs support practitioner, children’s transition officer and early years’ developmental play worker during her career in childcare and education.
Sam’s experience helps to shape our setting and creates a wonderful environment that children love to spend time in.

Sociable lunch | 11:50am
Your little one can join us for a sociable lunch session before their afternoon playschool session begins. We like our lunchtime to be a social experience for your little ones, we assist the children in laying out their lunch boxes on tables in social groupings.
We ask you to send your child in with a healthy, balanced lunch box. We will always put any uneaten food back into lunch boxes so you can monitor what is and isn’t popular.
Please remember that Child’s Play is a nut free zone.
