Open Monday to Friday: 7.30am to 6pm

The Cabin Childcare Centre occupies a purpose built nursery for children aged 2-4 years, located at the rear of the YMCA building in Honicknowle.

We have a large intergrated room for the children, which caters for their different ages and developmental needs, we also have a small room which is used for small group time, and quiet activities.  

Outside there is a large play area, featuring a mud kitchen, willow dome, play house, tunnel and much more for the children to explore.


The nursery is open from 7.30am - 6pm, offering full and part day care. All 3 and 4 year old children are eligible to attend a registered preschool setting using government funding for 15 hours per week during term time, from the beginning of the term following their 3rd birthday until they are of school age.  We accept me2 funding for 2 years olds, and 30 hour funding where eligible.


Please call on 761015 to arrange to visit of you would like more information. Julie is the Manager of this site and she will be happy to help you with any queries.

"You have guided both my children along the very tricky path of just turning three to leaving you at the even more complex age of four to start 'Big School'. The Cabin is a truly amazing environment, both fun and educational for all who pass through the gates.


I would gladly recommend The Cabin to anyone looking for childcare, it is a warm welcoming place, the staff are friendly and approachable and go out of their way to make you feel part of the family.


Thanks again for all you do. "

"Enrolling Charlie at The Cabin Childcare Centre in Manadon was the best thing we ever did. The staff quickly identified that he has some additional needs. They have supported him wholly and have sought professional involvement.  Charlie's communication and social skills have come on in leaps and bounds. I wish we had started him at The Cabin earlier.  His little sister now attends too."
