Welcome to The Island Hope Childcare, Sandown, Isle of Wight

Our aim is to ensure that the children who come to our Nurseries and Pre-schools have fun, enjoy their time with us and develop their learning in a calm, relaxed and natural way. We endeavour to provide an educationally stimulating environment in which the children are able to progress at their own speed towards the goals set in the Early Years Foundation Stage which was introduced by the Government in September 2008.

Above all, we aim to provide the best possible care for your child.

The Island Hope Childcare is based in Fort Street, Sandown - this is a new purpose-built nursery.

Open Monday to Friday.
