13 years ago we opened our doors for children and their families. We have delivered child care to many wonderful families over the years helping the children develop and grow to be ready for the big school.

For all these years, we have created a fun and secure place to learn. A place where children can create friendships, read, paint, make lots of different marks, be imaginative, jump, build, sing and simply have lots of fun.

Our rooms are regularly transformed using different themes based on the children’s interest… take a look at our gallery below to see how we turned Pre-school into the castle from Jack and the Beanstalk!

This nursery is part of a group that provides the most eco-sustainable childcare and education in the UK, being respectful of the environment and acting to reduce, re-use and recycle resources is an important part of the culture and routine for the children and staff.
