Academies (Pre-school)


We have three Wasps academies, in Latchford, Padgate and Sankey, which provide the perfect environment in which to gradually prepare your child for school life. We have an extensive range of facilities and specialist teaching means that children are encouraged to develop an enthusiasm for learning.

From cookery classes to educational games, we offer a wide variety of extra curriculum activities to allow your children to benefit from a breadth of different experiences. Children also have the opportunity to extend their learning through educational visits.

All our meals are cooked fresh daily offering nutritious food which is adapted to suit the individual dietary requirements of the children we care for. Healthy eating is promoted throughout our settings, with all our produce sourced locally.

Further Information


All our nurseries and children are safe at all times as our staff have a full understanding of safeguarding. No child is released from our care at any time unless this has been arranged and agreed in advance by the primary carer. Security is given the highest priority and we have robust procedures in place to protect everyone.

Equal Opportunities Policy

Wasps Nurseries believes that no child, individual or family should be excluded from the nursery’s activities on the grounds of age, gender, sexuality, class, family status, means, disability, colour, ethnic origin, culture, religion or belief.


Wasps Nurseries promote and encourage good behaviour. Clear intervention is implemented to children who bully their peers. Parents are informed immediately. Handling of behaviour is consistent and developmentally appropriate, respecting individual children’s level of understanding and maturity.


We understand that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework we provide covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.

Inclusion Policy

Wasps Nurseries cater specifically to the needs of every child. We keep a comprehensive record of each child’s progress, which is available to their parents or guardians. Additional support is available for children with special educational needs, for children who are more able, and those for whom English as an second language.


Children learn and develop best in an enabling environment where their individual needs are met and the partnership between staff and parents is strong. Their environment is a safe place for them to play and learn.
