Opened in September 2010, Shepherds Lane is situated within the grounds of Shepherds Primary School, Shepherds Lane offering a secure and secluded site for up to 60 children. We offer flexible sessions to suit your schedule. To find us just walk along the side path to the left hand side of the school.

Shepherds Lane boasts the largest outdoor garden in the vicinity. This abundance of space offers endless opportunities for learning through play, in support of children’s natural curiosity to explore the world around them. Facilities in the garden include a large sand pit, growing/digging areas, role-play corner, chalk-boards, canopy, and bike/wheeled toy area. We also have a separate baby garden, for our little explorers to safely enjoy! We also have The Break offering Out of School care for your children when they leave Daybreak and go to school.
