Chirpy Chicks in Gretton was established in the grounds of Gretton Primary Academy in 1999 and operates from a purpose-built building with lots of lovely outdoor space that is used as an open opportunity for the children every day in all weathers. We are a not-for-profi t Community Interest Company (CIC) and so everything goes back into the setting or is used to support the local community.

Chirpy Chicks is lead and managed by a very experienced and qualifi ed teacher. The Board of Directors consists of an Early Years Teacher, who also has a qualifi cation in Forest School, and another graduate in Early Years, so we have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. The team consists of a further fi ve qualifi ed and experienced Early Years Practitioners and a Deputy Manager, who is currently completing her degree course in Early Years Education.

All of the team are passionate about their work and committed to the children’s wellbeing and development, as well as building strong relationships with the families. We are very proud of our three consecutive Outstanding Ofsted grades, now consistent for many years, and work very hard to ensure all children and their families receive the very best in Early Years care and education.

We are open term time Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm and take children from 2 years to school age. We offer both unlimited funded and fee-paying spaces and aim to be fl exible in meeting the needs of the families. We also run Nature Nursery sessions where we take children out into the surrounding green spaces in Gretton to explore, experience and experiment with all that the great outdoors has for us.
