Stimulating play

Learning, stimulation, and support

Our highly qualified and experienced staff follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, planning activities and opportunities that your child will enjoy and be stimulated by. We are also keen to communicate closely with our parents so that we can better understand and cater to your child’s individual interests.

Our facilities

We can offer plenty of on-site variety to all of our children with our sensory room, soft play area, outdoor play equipment and a separate garden for digging, planting and learning about nature.

Open 8:00-18:00, Monday to Friday for children aged three months to five years
