A warm welcome from all of us here at Hooton Child Care


Set in an old Victorian Farmhouse with large mature grounds, Hooton Child Care is one of the few remaining independently – run childcare settings in the Chester / Wirral area.

Founded back in 1989 by existing owners Mike and Helen Walter, Hooton Child Care has been providing professional, high quality childcare for children from birth to 11 years of age in a stimulating, caring, “home from home” environment for the past 23 years. The beautiful building retains many of its original features, with spacious rooms, giving it a special character with a solid, secure feel that some modern purpose built units can lack. Parents bring their children from all over Cheshire and the Wirral. Chester, Childer Thornton, Ledsham and all across the Wirral.


With our old Victorian building and experienced staff, we are one of the few unique Nurseries left in the Chester area.



At Hooton Child Care we offer 3 distinct facilities under one roof – we can provide continuity of care for your child from 6 weeks of age, until they go to senior school!


Day Nursery

For the complete care and education of children from 6 weeks of age until they start school.


Out of School

Before and after school care, supervised activities, homework and fun for primary school children.


Holiday Play Scheme

An exciting “club” where school age children can enjoy endless fun during all school holidays.


Ample parking space is available at the front of the building, whilst the large, secure, south facing rear garden is a real treat! With a mix of lawned, paved, decked and soft play areas and an extensive range of high quality play equipment, we can encourage the physical development of children of all ages.

For us security is a high priority. A CCTV system operates throughout the building, outside play spaces and parking area 24 hours a day. Entry to the building is via a secure card / swipe access system for all parents, carers and staff.

On Hooton road near the junction with the A41, just off junction 5 of the M53, and close to Hooton station with Merseyrail links, we are ideally situated for transport links to and from the Wirral, Chester, Birkenhead and Liverpool.


Whether you are looking for a full or part – time place or need childcare to cover “term time” or irregular shift patterns – we are here to help.
