About Us

Here at Ellesmere Children’s Centre, we strive to provide award winning, Ofsted rated OUTSTANDING childcare in the Burngreave area of Sheffield.

We are led by a dynamic committee of volunteers. The centre has a culturally diverse, competent, multilingual staff team. We are dedicated to ensuring that every child who walks through our door feels a part of “our” wider family environment.

It is our hope that each child is able to flourish to their individual but full potential. We feel that good play experiences are key to engaging into the many facets of the world.

As part of our ethos we encourage all children, staff and any users of the centre to;

  • Respect Others

  • Understand Others

  • Enjoy Difference

  • Embrace life which is all around us.

We are a non-for-profit, charitable organisation which remains focused by ensuring all children who attend the centre receive the care and education required to support their unique potential.

Fees are kept affordable. We are also signed up to the government tax free childcare scheme. We offer 30 hours of free childcare to families that are eligible. We also offer 15 hour Free Early Learning (FEL) places for children aged 2/3/4 years of age.


We open all year round, from 8.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday, closing for a short period over the Christmas holiday and Bank Holidays.

Please contact the centre directly with any queries, for more information or an informal chat regarding places.
