“Children benefit enormously from the high-quality resources and learning spaces”

Ofsted 2014

The extensive grounds and our use of the outdoor environment sets us apart from other nurseries. We place great emphasis on getting outdoors taking daily walks, participating in Forest School, picnicking in the grounds, visiting the farm animals and exploring the environment with the changing seasons. Adventures in the grounds, gaining valuable exercise and finding muddy puddles are all part of daily nursery life.

The nursery cares for children aged between 2 and 4 years of age. Our dedicated staff team build firm relationships with children and their parents creating a relaxed and very family focussed setting. Our caring and nurturing environment encourages children to become independent, sociable, caring and confident individuals in preparation for their future school life.
