About the employer

We encourage children to become strong, independent characters by allowing them to explore the world around them and be inquisitive, critical thinkers that challenge what they see and learn. In order to become strong, independent individuals, we provide children with high quality educational equipment, materials and activities, both indoors and outdoors, appropriate for the different stages of a child’s development.

Partnership with parents is at the heart of all we do. From the outset, we continually work with parents with settling in sessions prior to your child starting nursery. We support parents and carers in the development of their children, both at nursery and at home, and encourage parents to have an active involvement in nursery life. 

We advocate a wide spectrum of extra-curricular clubs at no extra cost so that all children have equal opportunities. We are confident this all-round experience will support your child and allow them to excel in activities they may not usually partake in.

We firmly believe in inspiring our staff to be better, with excellence in everything we do. We aim to recruit passionate practitioners and grow staff to be the best they possibly can. By investing in our staff, we will continue to build a committed, effective and motivated team. We develop, promote and keep all our staff up to date with current research, Early Years and education trends; this enables them to implement the very best practice that training can empower them with.
