Based within the grounds of Heamoor Community Primary School in Heamoor, Penzance, we offer a variety of child care options for parents of children aged 0 to 12 years. We are open between 8am and 6pm,Monday to Friday, 51 weeks a year (we close for one week at Christmas, everybody needs a holiday sometime!) and can offer care for up to 52 children.
My name is Julie Cartwright and I am an Ofsted registered childminder based in Helston, Cornwall. I offer a warm welcome to all children aged from 0 - 11 years of age. I can provide flexibility andcontinuity of care allowing the child's routine as near as possible to be a replication of that at home. This makes it easier for the child/children to settle in and for you to be happy that your values/cultural needs are being respected.
In 1998 the school was full to capacity and needed the rooms the nursery occupied, so we had to look for a new home. After many enquiries and much work we received funding from N.R.F, S.R.B, D.F.E.S &Neighbourhood Nursery Initiative to build a new purpose built nursery on the site of Rosemellin Community Primary School. As well as being a registered charity, the Gooseberry Bush became the first Neighbourhood Day Nursery in the South West of England.
