Welcome to Growing Places – we provide a range of opportunities to encourage children to explore, think for themselves, find solutions and know that it is ok to make mistakes. In doing so, we build children’s resilience, self-esteem and self-belief, encouraging positive attitudes to future learning.

Growing Places is committed to enhancing lives, raising aspirations and creating opportunities for all stakeholders (children, their families, employees and volunteers)
To deliver this mission we will focus on the following areas:
1) Delivering excellent service which meets individual need
2) Promoting Parental engagement
3) Growing our people, securing the team of the future
4) Providing safe, engaging facilities within each setting
5) Ensuring good governance

Growing Places have been providers of not-for-profit childcare for over 20 years in Havant and Fareham Boroughs; we invest in our facilities, staff and resources and are committed to ensuring the highest quality of care and education for your child. We are fully inclusive and follow a Reggio inspired approach to childcare.
As a charitable company Community Childcare Centres operates a variety of childcare centres around Havant and Fareham Boroughs caring for children aged from 6 months to 11 years.
