Our building is double storey and purpose built, conveniently situated in Ardene Park, Abbey Road, Barrow In Furness. We are easily accessible from across Barrow In Furness and the surrounding villages with very good links to the A590 for those travelling from further afield. We know that choosing a nursery can be daunting for parents/carers and we understand the anxiety this decision can bring for those leaving their child in someone else’s care and education for the first time. We work closely with families and actively encourage parents/carers to become involved with their child’s learning, building further on these parental partnerships throughout the Happy Tots journey.
