Treetops is set in a warm inviting purpose built childcare provision in the lovely rural location of Bridestowe just outside of Okehampton. It has been running for over 40 years offering excellent nurturing preschool care for 2-5 year olds.

In recent years we have added the now popular Breakfast and Afterschool club which run through the week supporting families with childcare. In addition, we also started the well attended Holiday activity club for 2-12 year olds in which children from all over the Okehampton Learning Community attend.

Treetops has strong links with all the local schools which enhances the ability to provide a good childcare provision for where ever families live. For more info please don’t hesitate to contact us or have a look on our easy to use website. 

We provide an excellent stimulating enviroment for our children, we nurture them as they develop their skills and knowledge within the EYFS and beyond.

The preschool is open 5 days a week, 9.30-3.30pm 

The Breakfast and Afterschool club is open either side of the preschool hours and children aged 2- 12 can attend these clubs.
