They have a specially designed room for each age group: babies (0-2 years old), toddlers (2-3 years old) and pre-schoolers (3-5 years old) so they can play and learn with friends their own age. They have a well-resourced sensory room, a quiet relaxing area if the children are feeling over stimulated, a wonderful quiet space to relax. The garden is inviting. Each age group have their own play area.  They have an all-weather gazebo, so the children have access to outdoor play in all weathers. They have a reading nook in the garden where the children can have shelter from the sun and have a relaxing space to look at books. There’s plenty of scope for role play, climbing and riding trikes, and even a children’s vegetable garden.
