Staff plan their next steps of learning using the child's  interests



Registered with Ofsted No. EY490148

The nursery is a safe and stimulating environment to have fun, be happy and flourish. We are dedicated to provide the highest quality of care and education and will endeavour to work with each child to enable them to reach their full potential. 


We offer carefully planned experiences and opportunities to ensure each child is provided with a solid foundation for future learning.


Nursery staff encourage parents/carers to spend time in the nursery settling their children in. Health and nutritional snacks are provided in the day but parents/carers should provide a packed lunch/baby milk and nappies, if required.


All staff have recognised childcare qualifications, Paediatric First Aid and Child Protection Certificates.


Staff work in partnership with parents/carers to ensure each child's individual needs are met and that there is a caring and inviting environment in all areas of the nursery supporting children to become independent and confident learners. 


Staff work to regulated ratios and all staff, volunteers and students are Enhanced DBS checked.
