We offer flexible childcare to ensure we cater for all families and their individual needs. We offer half days, full days, along will free funded days once your child reaches preschool age. Our nursery management team will explain Childcare Choices, a government scheme that helps with childcare costs.

We understand that, as a parent, you have a million things to do and prepare for your child every morning. We hope to ease your daily routine by taking care of these essentials of nappies and milk for your little one whilst they are at nursery.

We keep a record of your child’s time and progress at nursery via a system called ‘Tapestry’, an online learning journal. Using hand held devices we can instantly record and report on your child’s special moments and achievements and link them into your child’s personal profile. You will be able to view the observations as a learning journey, flipping through the pages in time order, or filtering to access your favourite records.

Our nursery inside and outdoors is packed with resources to provide plenty of varied and exciting learning opportunities all planned out by our committed team of Early Years Practitioners. The playrooms bustle with activities throughout the day based on your child’s interests.

Our staff build excellent relationships with your child and you; parent partnerships are key for every child’s development. Want to see it for yourself? Book now to arrange a visit! Our helpful team will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
