Hello and welcome to Franklin First Call Nursery. We are a purpose built

the general public.
Franklin First Call opened on January 27, 2003. The nursery is OFSTED registered and caters for children aged 2-5 years. Opening hours are 8.00am - 6.00pm Monday to Friday.

The nursery has been funded as part of the Governments
Neighbourhood Nursery Initiative. Other funding providers include Learning and
Skills Council, Childcare Community Fund and Franklin College. We receive nursery education vouchers for 2, 3 and 4 year olds for 38 weeks per year for 15 hours per week.
The nursery environment is a jungle theme and consists of an under 2’s unit, a 2-5years unit, outdoor area and physical room which has various soft play equipment to promote physical development and healthy life styles
Our staff are of varying ages with a wide range of childcare experience
and are constantly updating their qualifications. At Franklin we recognise children's safety as paramount and the nursery has an electronic entry
security system. At Franklin First Call we see your children as individuals
and as such work closely with parents to meet each child's individual needs.
All meals are freshly prepared on a daily basis using the ‘eat better start better’ recommendations childrensfoodtrust.org.uk/pre-school/eat-better-start-better
Franklin welcomes parents and children to come and see for yourselves our
happy and welcoming environment.
We look forward to welcoming you,
