Sutton Paintbox

Welcome to Paintbox!


Paintbox was established in 1984 moving into our current purpose built surrounding inside Sutton children centre in 2009.


Originally set up as a pre-school offering sessional care, we now offer full wrap around care for children aged from 2 years 6 months to primary school age. We offer an environment which is safe, stimulating and fun that provides support and challenge for all of the children's individual needs in our breakfast, pre-school and after school club sessions. Working parents and children that just can't get enough of Paintbox will love our school holiday club. Please see our prospectuses’ for further information on the individual sessions.


Our staff team is very experienced and committed to supporting the children and their families. It is important to us that your child is happy and secure and makes good progress in their time at Paintbox. We have good links with the local community, which will benefit your children, including the local schools, Children’s Centre and Health Visitors.
