Burton Play

Ofsted registered, high quality childcare in Burton upon Stather, North Lincolnshire.

Burton Play is a purpose-built childcare setting based in the grounds of Burton upon Stather Primary School, near Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire. We offer a variety of flexible childcare options for children from two weeks old to 11 years old.

We are a member of the Early Years Alliance which supports us to help our children learn through play, giving them the best possible start in life.

Our Mission

Our curriculum has its foundations in the belief that children learn when they feel safe and happy and have the opportunity to lead their own play. Children learn best when they are engaged in play, supported by interested, caring adults who extend their learning by following their interests. Read our full mission statement.
