About the employer

Our nursery has a large outdoor area that consists of two play areas which we utilise fully.  Children enjoy exploring the wooded area of the garden to see what plants and animals they can find.  The also enjoy using the paved area and smaller grassed area for bikes, cars, balls and slides.  We have a fantastic maze where the children can explore and get lost.  Don’t worry, it is only about three feet high so they will always be found again by one of our vigilant members of staff.
