The Cabin at YMCA Plymouth
The Cabin Childcare Centres' nursery occupies a purpose-built nursery for children aged 2-4 years, located at the rear of the YMCA building in Honicknowle.
We have a large integrated room for children, which caters to different age groups and individual developmental needs. We also have a small room which is used for small group time and quiet activities.
We have a large play area outside, featuring a mud kitchen, willow dome, play house, tunnel and much more, for the children to explore.
Children's holiday club
Fun whatever the weather!
Let your children have fun and enjoy the children's holiday club at The Cabin Childcare Centres in Plymouth. We help children explore and learn about the world around them with various activities and games.
We understand the working parents may find it difficult to keep children entertained during the holidays. So, let them join our holiday club where they can interact with other children of their age and learn and grow together. Our professional childcare providers can tailor activities based on a child's individual development needs.
