The toddlers have their own room to play with free access to many activities such as crafts, games, home corner and messy play. There is also a cosy corner for taking naps and sharing stories quietly. The children are cared for in small groups and will be encouraged to progress and become more confident and independent through their play.

PRE SCHOOL 3-5 years 
The children in the pre school room follow a slightly more structured day to help them develop in line with the Early Learning Goals set by the DCSF. The staff follow a curriculum designed to your child's individual needs; activities will be planned which are fun and exciting to ensure that children enjoy their time in this room. Their activity areas will include sand/water, messy play, construction, book area, mathematical resources and puzzles.

Holiday Club
Throughout Summer


We will be celebrating the children who are leaving us to join reception in September. We are holding a ceremony for them to mark this milestone in their life and time with us.

We have started a holiday club for 5-8 year olds during school breaks.

To book you can call or email the nursery and request the price list.

Appointments can be made by calling the nursery.

The parent session is your opportunity to come and talk to the staff about your child's development in an informal environment over a drink (tea and coffee only). Parents have benefited greatly from this, working in partnership to aid their child's development.
