‘Every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to fulfil their potential.  A child’s experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances.  A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in its own right, and it provides the foundation for children to make the most of their abilities as they grow up’ (DfES, 2007:2)

Our fully trained, qualified, and dedicated staff ensure that your child is prepared for the future using a play-based curriculum (EYFS).

By working in partnership with parents we will provide a holistic approach to your child’s growth and development ensuring that children, parents, and families have the best possible experience from our nurseries.
