Introducing our story...

“We believe that children deserve a childhood rich with exploration, play and freedom, that learning should be a time of magic and adventure. Kingwood Children is home to our unique approach through which each day sings with the joy of story, creativity and discovery together.”
– The Kingwood team

Kingwood Children has been providing high quality childcare in Rural Mid Devon since August 2010. A gentle beginning within the family home of  founders Claire and Trevor Dancer has grown steadily over the years as more families choose our services. Today we have two large venues; The Kingwood Centre in Uffculme and Muddifords Court, Willand.

Our ethos draws inspiration from the natural world, from our many years experiencing the magic of childhood through the hearts and minds of the countless children who have passed through our doors and from the fantastic professionals, pioneering in their field, whom we continue to seek out and work with. Through time, love and the determination to always place children at the forefront of their learning we have developed our own unique approach that is very much “The Kingwood Approach”.

As you explore our story further through the pages of this website we hope you experience a window into our magical days, glimpse the essence of our practise and, if you would like to know more, please book a visit to come and see all we have to offer your family. We are so much more than childcare, we look to the heart of childhood and marvel at it’s wonder. Our days are a celebration of the magical journey of being a child growing up in this world. We are here to support the adult members of our families too, with events, socials, groups, courses and our famous Café!
