Echoes Childcare will be opening at Exeter’s stunning new Winslade Park in early 2022.
Families in the local community as well as parents working at Winslade Park now have the chance to secure places at the brand new nursery facilities set in beautiful parkland.
Echoes will be located in an impressive 2892 sq ft premises in Winslade House which has been taken on a long-term lease. The building is ready to be transformed into a purpose-designed light-filled nursery and will include onsite kitchen facilities for the preparation of nutritious meals, individual playrooms, a secure garden and ample parking for parents.
It is the second nursery for the business, which was established in Broadclyst in 2014 by Jo Cook and Michele Stevens. The pair were keen to create a nursery they would feel confident to send their own children to, which would offer high quality, professional childcare with a strong family feel. Since then, the nursery in Signal House has garnered a first-rate reputation with parents and is full to capacity – leading to the need for a new location.
Jo said: “This is a truly exciting development for Echoes. We have been waiting for the right opportunity to expand and Winslade Park has given us the perfect option, in a totally stunning setting.
“It’s close enough to our Broadclyst nursery to maintain the family connection and support our aims of providing the same level of care. This new nursery will enable us to take children from Clyst St Mary, Exmouth, Topsham, Sidmouth, Woodbury and beyond.”
Jo added that Echoes is keen to hear from anyone interested in working at the new premises. An open event for potential recruits will be held at Winslade Manor later in November.
John Harvey, Community Manager at Burrington Estates, said: “We are delighted to welcome Echoes Childcare to the Winslade family.
“From the start of the refurbishment of Winslade Park our ambition was to have a nursery on board. Echoes fits the bill perfectly with its commitment to supporting a quality work life balance for families, which reflects our own ethos.”
