Workplace nursery - Flippers

Flippers Nursery is a workplace nursery for the Borough of Poole that opened in 1995. We operate from Parkstone United Reformed Church, which is only a few minutes walk away from the Civic Centre, and we cater for 40 children per day.

We were Ofsted inspected in November 2008, receiving a good judgement, meaning the aspect of our provision is strong. Flippers Ofsted record

The nursery also follows the Poole Pathway to Quality Scheme, striving for excellence for all children in Poole. In our last annual review in February 2012 we achieved  an enhanced judgement (outstanding) meaning we are having a highly positive impact on the future life chances for all our children.

Children who are already at Flippers are happy, settled and well cared for by a professional and dedicated team of staff who have a good understanding of children’s individual needs. The nursery is equipped to a high standard offering a homely and warm environment in which babies and young children can develop at their own pace.
