Experienced practitioners will work with you to provide 'like home' care, ensuring routines for sleeping and eating are tailored for your child. Milk feeds are provided by parents, weaning foods can be provided.

Your baby will always be placed in the same cot with their own bedding set provided to ensure good hygiene. Routines are flexible to suit the needs of your child in daily activities such as walks, outdoor, and messy play helping to develop their young mind.

"My son's confidence has grown, he will now babble and smile to unfamiliar people and his physical skills have developed immensely. We believe that this is due to starting nursery with having the support from the staff and a variety of new activities to explore."

Toddler Room (2-3)

When your child reaches the age of two, the learning focus is on the language and communication explosion and developing the growing independence that comes to the fore at this age. Activities are always changing and having a go across a range of experiences is encouraged.

"They do lots of activities, authentic play, plenty of fun outside and enjoy a lovely varied diet at mealtimes."

At the age of 3, your child will have the opportunity to participate in activities that they have planned and contributed to. Activities are based on children's interests with your child leading their own learning.

Your child will access the nursery gardens, which are set up for key learning opportunities.

Carer arrangements support your child throughout the nursery to become secure, confident, learners.

Good links have been developed with close feeder schools helping both you and your child through this transition.
