About Us

Before September 2014, Cashmore Early Years Centre had been closed for 8 years. In 2014 the Centre re-opened under the leadership of St Philip’s Marsh Nursery School and now has over 100 children attending regularly.

Along with St Philip’s Marsh Nursery School, Wellspring Settlement and Wellspring Health Centre, Cashmore Early Years Centre is a part of the Barton Hill Children’s Centre. Together we provide safe places for your children to stay, play and learn as well as help for you to look after your family’s health and well being.

Cashmore Early Years Centre provides early years education for children aged 2 to 4 years old. The Centre is open from 9.00am to 3.30pm, term time only (term dates).
