Nursery

Granta Park Montessori Nursery opened its doors in their new premises on Monday 25th June 2018. Operated by Sunhill Daycare, a maximum of 90 places are offered between the opening hours of 07:30-18:30, Monday to Friday.

The new premises have been carefully designed to offer children a stimulating and exciting environment to play and learn in. Each room has its own secure outdoor area, offering all children interesting and challenging experiences both indoors and outdoors in all weathers. The outdoor area has been created to develop children’s early science skills, and to help promote children’s creative and critical thinking.

The Montessori ethos is used, alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage. Montessori focuses on the immense capacity of children to absorb information by giving them the freedom and independence to learn at their own pace. This is based on the deep understanding of the way children learn, through choosing, trying and doing things for themselves. Activities are designed to teach children independence from an early age, including self-serving their own meals, and washing up and tidying up afterwards.

Kirsty Love, Head of Childcare and Operations at Sunhill Daycare, comments ‘We are delighted to have moved into our new premises at Granta Park which provides an inspirational environment for children to learn in. We have already had extremely positive feedback from parents on our new premises, and both the children and staff have settled in exceptionally well.’

Sunhill offer both 15 and 30 hours government funding for eligible children, and also accept childcare vouchers and payment via tax free childcare. Discount is also available for Granta Park employees.

More information is available online at www.sunhilldaycare.com, or alternatively contact Rosie or Dawn on 01223 892010 or grantaparknursery@sunhilldaycare.com to arrange a visit.

Car Share Scheme

Free to join, Granta Park’s car share scheme is a great way to set up a lift share with other staff members commuting to Granta Park. Granta Park has its own dedicated car share website which offers members a quick, easy and secure way to make contact with each other.

grantapark.liftshare.com

Benefits of car sharing include saving money, reducing local congestion and getting to know your colleagues.

Remember you don’t need to own a car to car share, you can just search for a lift too.

We are slowly introducing ‘car share only’ parking bays across the Park; to use these you will need a permit. Please see here for a step-by-step guide on how to register for the scheme or request a parking permit.

Foot & Cycle Paths

There are several options for those wishing to commute to Granta Park via foot or bicycle. For a plan see here.

The N11 cycle route connects Cambridge to Sawston and there is a dedicated off-road cycle path linking Sawston and Babraham. There is a permissive cycle path through Babraham Farm which provides a link between Babraham and the Granta Park main entrance. This route includes a footbridge with cycle wheel ramps across the A11.  Additionally a link to the cycle route along the A1307 was opened in February 2017. This link provides a traffic free cycle route through The Babraham Institute which connects to the existing cycle network.

These cycle routes provide a cycle link between Cambridge and Granta Park as well as the villages to the south of Cambridge including Trumpington, Great Shelford, Stapleford, Sawston and Babraham.

In addition to these routes, there is a 2m wide asphalt surfaced shared footway / cycleway along the northern side of the A505 between Granta Park and Whittlesford Parkway railway station approximately 4km to the southwest of the site.

A narrow 1m to 1.5m wide footway / cycleway is also provided along the northern side of the A1307 between Hildersham and Linton, to the southeast of Granta Park. This provides a cycle link from Linton, with agreement with Cambridgeshire County Council to potentially extend the route to Granta Park in the future.

If you are not keen on cycling alone, why not find a BikeBUDi? The scheme is accessible through the car share website it is free to join and will match individuals cycling the same route so they can cycle together.
