Welcome to our St Pauls Stalybridge Setting.
 

St Paul’s was Funtasia’s first setting to open in 1996. This was the time when before and after school clubs were just starting to appear, we were one of the first in Tameside! We recognised the need for flexible childcare for working parents in a safe and stimulating environment, where children could play, relax, finish homework and make new friends. Since this time we have seen lots of changes to the childcare sector however we have continued to grow, develop and evolve to be recognised as one of the best childcare providers in Tameside!  

Children can attend from St Paul’s C of E School and Wild bank primary. We have excellent partnerships with our schools with daily communications.  

We offer flexible bookings, full and part time places, ad hoc or emergency childcare.  

All of our dedicated staff hold or a recognised 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.  

Our 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 school. 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.  

We are currently recognised as an OUTSTANDING setting by Ofsted 2016  Click here to see our current Ofsted report

WHAT OUR PARENTS SAY

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

    Katie

  • 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

  • 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
