Welcome to our St Johns Dukinfield Setting.

Funtasia’s St Johns setting is based within St Johns school.

Children can attend from St Johns primary and nursery school. We have excellent partnerships with our schools with daily communications.  We offer flexible bookings, full and part time places, ad hoc or emergency childcare.  

Staff hold, or are working towards a childcare qualification, paediatric first Aid certificate and training in child protection, food Hygiene, Health and Safety amongst other training. Funtasia is committed to staff development.  

Breakfast club starts at 7.30 where staff will provide your child with a healthy nutrious breakfast. After breakfast they can choose to relax or play with friends before being taken to their class. After school club children are safely collected from school before receiving a healthy snack back at the club, children can then take part in activities, play with friends, read, do their homework or play out before being collected. Our after school club closes at 6.00pm. Children in nursery or reception class follow the Early Years framework your child’s key worker will work with you and the school to compliment learning taking place at school.  

Children can attend our holiday club during the school holidays; this is based at St Raphaels Stalybridge.  

We are currently recognised as an OUTSTANDING setting by Ofsted 2017  Click here to see our current Ofsted report

WHAT OUR PARENTS SAY

  • Can't thank the staff enough for all they do with my little boy especially Sammy, I feel happy that my son is well looked after and he is happy whilst me and my husband are at work the staff are friendly and caring, I would highly recommend Funtasia especially Fantasia Micklehurst.

    Naomi Rigby

  • Wonderful! The care and kindness shown is second to none.

    Katie

  • Fantastic set up with wonderful staff that care for and look after your children superbly. My daughter was always excited and happy to go to Funtasia and built extremely good relationships with the staff making it easy for me to leave her knowing she was safe and happy.

    Lizanne Scott

  • EXCELLENT ENVIRONMENT! GREAT ACTIVITIES! LOVELY FRIENDLY STAFF ! Clean , happy , brilliant value !

    Emmah

  • I have been using funtasia now for many years. All three of my children have spent time with the funtasia team. GREAT environment, fantastic activities and beautifully warm and welcoming staff. I couldn't recommend funtasia even nearly enough. They are truly amazing. Here's to many more years

    Colleen

  • Although Seren is too little to tell me, I can see for myself what an amazing time she is having. The way her face lights up as we walk through the door, the way she beams and smiles at you all (and how she barely notices that I leave

    Zoe Larkin Kelsall

  • I wanted my son to develop his own independence away from me, to build his confidence, to learn a positive teacher/pupil relationship and for him to make friends in a fun, gentle and encouraging environment. All of which he has done in abundance with the love, attention and support of all the staff at Funtasia, who treat all the children like part of their own family. Communication between parents/guardians and staff is always open and encouraged. I would wholeheartedly recommend Funtasia First Steps to any parent looking for a nursery/preschool setting for their baby/child

    Francessca

  • My little girl has spent a few weeks here at holiday club this summer and has loved it, staff friendly and a really nice atmosphere in the club. Will defiantly be going back again

    David Robinson

  • Daniel absolutely loves Funtasia ... the staff are so lovely and he has such a good time ... thank you to the staff for your hard work and making it the fantastic club it is I wouldn't have my son go anywhere else xx
