Age Range

Baby room

We welcome babies from three months old. We work very closely with parents because we recognize the importance of continuity of routine between home and nursery.

Toddler room

Children from approximately 18 months old develop through a balance of play, structured, independent, guided and shared activities.

Pre-school room

Children enjoy our pre-school curriculum for 3 - 5 year olds that meet all current objectives in Early Years Education and develop within a flexible framework. Your child's key person will be able to draw upon a wide range of our resources and equipment to ensure individual needs are met.

At the end of every session attended, you will receive informal feedback about your child's day.
