About the employer

Welcome to Holly House! As parents ourselves, we understand the value of good quality childcare. That is why at Holly House we have created a safe place for children to explore and discover the world around them.

Children develop an understanding of their environment in our fantastic outdoor space which houses a large vegetable plot, wooden play equipment and traversing wall, all surrounded by mature trees.

Our comprehensive list of facilities and resources support children in expressing themselves in a way that is relevant to them. By understanding that children are on a learning journey, we recognise that mistakes are golden opportunities for growth and development.

Our team is experienced and qualified and appreciate that each child is unique. We think that Holly House is a fantastic starting point in your child’s journey, we hope that you do too.
