About the employer

Welcome to Holly House

The first five years of life are pivotal in a child's development. High quality early years provision can help children achieve their potential and give them a strong foundation for school. 


Therefore making your decision for pre­school care and education is one of the most important you will ever make!


That decision is one that we struggled with and was the motivation we needed to open our first nursery in 2004.

Since then we have created nurseries with a reputation for excellence that exist on the recommendation of one parent to another.

Our experience in childcare and our knowledge as parents to three young children has given us the perfect insight into what other parents are looking for when they require day care for their own children.
