I would like to welcome you to Yaqadoodle Childcare Academy, a registered Nursery practice regulated by Ofsted located in Stretford. A place where we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality care, ensuring our team of Nursery practitioners are able to do this in a clean, secure and friendly environment covering all aspects of EYFS.

The Yaqadoodle team support your child’s growth and learning by adopting age appropriate stimulating activities, both indoors and outdoors, in order to promote their independence and build their confidence, ensuring they have a successful happy start in life.

I would also like to mention, in light of the coronavirus pandemic, Yaqadoodle is one of the few childcare providers in Stretford, Manchester to remain open during these unprecedented times. We continue to have a firm commitment to support vulnerable children and whose parents are key workers. We recognise that key workers are crucial to the coronavirus response, and my team and I wish to offer our full support and gratitude by providing a dedicated childcare service, in order for key workers to continue their vital work.

With this in mind, Yaqadoodle has further stepped up safety measures following Government announcements. The safety and wellbeing of our staff, and service users is of paramount importance to us, which is why we have implemented a number of key measures in the nursery. These are being closely monitored as child safety within our care, remains paramount and at the heart of what we do.

You will be aware that in 2022 the Nursery was inspected by Ofsted. We are delighted to announce that Yaqadoodle Childcare Academy has officially been awarded ‘Good’ in every category by Ofsted. You can click the link below to read the report.
