Blinco Grove

YMCA Childcare Blinco Grove is our newest Childcare setting, situated at 100 Blinco Grove, Cambridge CB1 7TS.

The provision caters for children aged 3 months to 5 years and has the capacity for up to 73 children at one time.

We have two spacious rooms that will be set up to meet all areas of the early years foundation stage, in order to encourage and enhance children’s learning and development. Children have access to a large outside area where we encourage play in all weathers.

YMCA Childcare provides a safe, secure and happy environment in which children will feel confident and ready to learn. Children will be supported by experienced staff who are all committed to providing quality nursery education and support.
