About The Childcare Hub

Nurseries World’s New Nursery Launch Of The Year Winner

The new Childcare Hub is Kids Play’s home of nature-based play. With all rooms having free-flow access to woodland gardens, children can fully connect with the great outdoors.

Whether your child is 6 months or 5 years, the setting has the resources to further their development. Babies motor skills are encouraged with natural wooden toys, toddlers love water and creative play, whilst Pre-Schoolers can’t get enough of the forest school activities and storytelling in our Hobbit house.

To encourage children to care for animals, the Pre-schoolers help look after Gary the Giant Land Snail, whilst the resident rabbits and guinea pigs live in the Toddler Garden.

Being the home of nature-based play, little green figures are nurtured. On the roof garden, children can plant and care for vegetables and herbs, to use them for their own pizza creations which they cook in the outside pizza oven.

Across Kids Play Childcare in Milton Keynes, we use child-led learning called ‘planning in the moment’. This enables our practitioners to build on a child’s natural interest and turn any play into a learning opportunity.

Working with parents and carers

At The Childcare Hub, you will have a designated key person who will look after your child’s well being and development.  In addition to daily updates, you’ll obtain a more detailed review of your child’s progress monthly in the baby room, every 5 weeks in the toddler room and every 10 weeks in the Pre-School room.  This is a formal feedback session with every parent or guardian.

Throughout the year, you will also be invited to events to meet other parents and see how we embrace nature-based play.

A fully inclusive Childcare company.

We welcome all children at Kids Play Childcare in Milton Keynes. Should your child require additional support for special education needs, disabilities or speak English as a second language, please ask how the team can help.

This Nursery also welcomes 2-year-old Nursery Education Grants (NEGs) from Milton Keynes Council, as well as 3-year-old government funding (for either the 15 or 30 free hours).

Nature Based Play

At Kids Play we believe learning should be an adventure, which is why our learning is based around nature-based play!

Throughout our childcare in Milton Keynes, you’ll see children play with natural wooden toys, use real vegetables in our role play areas and create outdoor inspired arts and crafts. Watch our video below to see why we embrace nature-based play!

Children learn about the world

Children learn about the world in which they live, such as when they grow beans and celebrate festivals. They find out how things work, for example, as they push buttons on toys and use binoculars and magnifying glasses.
