Why Parents Choose Us

All of the children who attend Sandy Bears will be provided with a ‘Key Worker’. This is one member of staff who will work closely with the child and parents to ensure all developmental milestones are being met and to promote a high level of wellbeing for your child whist they are onsite. The EYFS underpins all of our practice standards.

About Us

Sandy Bears Cholmondeley is run by Laura Yates (Owner of Sandy Bears Tattenhall) and Astone Mackintosh-Smith (Manager of Sandy Bears Tattenhall). Laura and Astone both have a wealth of experience in Early Years and working to the highest standard within this field. Laura and Astone are also dedicated to the setting and have established a setting that supports not only the childs learning and wellbeing but the family as a whole.

Sandy Bears Tattenhall is currently rated Outstanding by Ofsted (Sept 2016) and both Laura and Astone are dedicated to opening another provision with the same ethos and same exceptional standards as in Tattenhall. They have spent 18months looking for the perfect site to house the new provision and the site chosen is well connected being near the A41, A543 and A49

Sandy Bears Cholmondeley is housed within Cholmondeley Estate near the farm shop and post office and boasts purpose built rooms and two large outdoor spaces to give children a wide range of exciting and stimulating opportunities. In all 3 rooms the staff focus on children being happy, healthy and confident which promotes continual learning and fun! We are also so fortunate to have magical Forest School Sessions available to us which allows children to learn in a unique and adventurous way onsite in our ‘Forest Garden’.
