Based in the heart of the Grimsbury area of Banbury, East Street Early Years a non-profit organisation, we are able to offer a broader range of support to both children and their families, reinvesting any surplus we make into childcare provision in the local community.
Our aim is to offer excellent care and education in a fun, safe environment, taking into consideration the background and beliefs of all of our families. As a CIC we are able to specialise in providing inclusive care for children with special educational needs and also to provide additional support to families in difficult circumstances. Children are encouraged to develop to their own full potential and at their own pace with the support and care of our qualified and experienced staff. We encourage parents to be involved in their children’s learning, and our open door policy means you are welcome to come and visit at any time.
