About us

When we opened our doors in 1976, Gingerbread Corner was the first after-school care scheme in Europe.

We started to look after under fives in 1984, and can provide care for up to nearly 200 children a day in a spacious, accessible and purpose built child-care centre.


Providing a safe and fun learning environment for children aged between three months and 11 years, with experience caring for children with disabilities and individual requirements.


We have a soft play room, sensory room & garden, four dedicated nursery rooms, an Adventure Playground and many other special rooms. Our children enjoy a variety of home-made meals for lunch and snack which take into account the children's dietary needs.


Because Gingerbread Corner is a charity, we offer discounts based on your household salary income so, the less you earn the less you pay. To help you that little bit more, we also offer a discount for siblings and all military personnel, NHS staff and emergency workers.


Many of our "ex-children" have returned as parents - and quite a few as staff members - and I can't think of a better testimonial to our services and our continuity of care.
