About Us

We are Windmill

Based in Redruth, we are a pre-school as well as a full day care nursery. This means your children can attend just one setting right through from babyhood to school. This will enable them to build strong bonds with the staff and have a ‘home from home’ environment for their first experience away from Mum and Dad!

We  work with you and support you if you are a working parent and need flexibility. We are as flexible as we can be in the day nursery and the pre-school room, when your children receive early education funding. This means your pre-school aged children can have first class education on days when it suits you. This includes having 11 hours funding all the year round instead of 15 hours term time only – if you prefer this and it suits your lifestyle. Talk to us about your individual needs.

All children are provided with healthy snacks in the morning and the afternoon.  Children who stay for the whole day will need to bring in a well balanced packed lunch – preferably with healthy options.  The staff are happy to discuss suitable items for packed lunches with parents, on request.  Please note: We are unable to heat any aspect of packed lunches, and food should be packed in a way so that it is ready for your child to eat it without further preparation.

We have places for children aged from birth to five years and we are registered with Ofsted. 

Our Vision

In partnership with parents, we strive to build quality foundations which last a lifetime

Our Aims

  • To provide the highest quality care and education in the early years.
  • To prepare each child for the next stage of their education.
  • To have regard for each individual child’s differing needs, age or level of development.
  • To allow children to learn through well-structured play and many first-hand experiences.
  • To recognise that parents are the prime educators of their children at this stage, and strive to work closely with them.

Opening Hours

We are open every weekday from 8.00am to 6.00pm. We offer both term time and all year round childcare.

We are only closed on Bank Holidays and between Christmas and New Year.
