Our Premises

Established in 2000, Sandcastles boasts as its home the original school for Hadleigh built in 1909.  It is therefore a building with plenty of history, character and space.

Major restoration and redesign works transformed the building making it a fantastic environment specifically designed around the needs of young children.

The main building comprises of 4 large rooms downstairs plus a kitchen, laundry room and 2 sets of children’s toilets.  Upstairs is home to our gym.  Adjacent to the main building is a separate suite for our youngest children.

All the age groups have direct access to their own, partially covered outside areas which, along with the rooms have been developed to ensure continuous provision both inside and out.  In addition to these outside spaces, there’s a very large grass garden which like everything at Sandcastles is constantly evolving to reflect the children’s interests and needs.

To the front of the property is a large car park ensuring drop off and collection times are as stress free as possible.  Our reception area provides a warm welcome, somewhere to sit and relax and houses our lending library and a wealth of useful information.

Situated in Hadleigh on the A13 ensures easy access by car, public transport and on foot.  We are on a major bus route and close to both Leigh and Benfleet train stations.  Hadleigh town centre with all its amenities is a short walk resulting in Sandcastles being embedded within the local community.
