The Nursery is situated on one level, being a single storey building with four main rooms. We also have a designated sleep room and garden for the babies. Upon application, we will ask you to provide us with your baby’s usual daily patterns i.e. eating, sleeping, any known likes and dislikes etc, this helps us to create a “home from home” feeling.

Our Pre-school, again is situated on one level. Here learning literacy, numeracy, personal and social skill, a basic knowledge and understanding of the world, as well as creative and physical development is continued. This will ensure that once the children reach school age, they display confidence within all these aspects.

Each child has their own learning journey which progresses through the nursery with them. In here we record their development across all seven areas of learning and any achievements & landmarks they have reached. Upon leaving, this file becomes yours and charts your child's time and history here at nursery, which we hope will be something for you to treasure when your child is older.
