"But they won't eat that at home, whats the secret?"

Healthy, delicious and varied home cooked meals are prepared from scratch by our on site chef. We cater for all dietary and weaning requirements, offering breakfast, lunch, dinner and healthy snacks throughout our day! 

We often hear that the children 'only like that at Scallywags' - don't worry, we do share our recipes on Facebook.

Tear in the eye moments

"We just wanted to say a massive thank you for all you’ve done for both our boys over the years. It really feels like an end of an era for us. To me Scallywags has been like our extended family, always there no matter what life throws at us.

C has had a wonderful time with you and I know he enters the life of school a confident and happy boy because of the experiences and care he has received from your amazing staff. So a big thank you again, i’m sure we’ll be back for Holiday Club one day!"

Choosing a childcare setting can be a scary process, we try to make life as easy as possible for you.
