About the employer

Children use play to form the basis of their learning. This is why this nursery makes sure that they have many different and varied opportunities throughout the Nursery environment for them to do this. They constantly look to modernise and upgrade their facilities to make sure that all children have access to high quality equipment and can develop as far as possible during their time at the nursery and that they are totally prepared for school. This nursery also practices free-flow play for every age group, meaning that the children are free to choose an indoor or outdoor environment to learn in depending on how they feel. This ethos is based upon the EYFS guidance and has been adapted to perfectly suit our unique environments.
