Our established nursery provides a safe environment which is happy and social, allowing the children in our care to develop and grow as individuals. We believe in having strong relationships with all parents and have an open door policy which allows parents to see at first hand their child's development and progress throughout their time in our care.
We were rated OUTSTANDING in our last Ofsted inspection.
The nursery operates from a converted house and has 4 rooms.For more information on each of our nursery rooms, please visit 'Our Nursery Rooms' page. All children have access to a secure and enclosed outdoor play area which has been individually designed. During the day we encourage children to be active and use the outdoor space. There is CCTV throughout the nursery.
We provide the children in our care with nappies (depending on age) and food is also included. Please note that we do not provide formula milk. We have a cook on site who prepares fresh food to create healthy, balanced meals daily.
