From a friendly welcome to a cheery goodbye you can be confident that there is a full day of challenging activities ahead to inspire and develop those busy minds.

Nursery Closures

The nursery will close the week between Christmas and New Year, we close on ALL bank holidays and can close for training a maximum of two days per year. No charge is made for these closures.


Child Care Vouchers

We are registered with a variety of childcare vouchers please ask Lisa or Sally if we are registered with your provider.


Schools and collections

The nursery has close links with the local first schools and passes on any relevant information to them during their time with us and when a child leaves. We operate a collection service from two of the local school nurseries; however this is subject to numbers and availability. Your child can be collected and remain with us for the rest of the day. We are unable to take children to the school nursery.
