The babies have their own rooms consisting of a large open plan play room, a sleep room and a room for messy play and meals.

 The equipment in the baby room has been chosen carefully to ensure it is appropriate for their age.

Our Toddler rooms have lots of space, allowing the toddlers to express themselves through their play, these rooms are spacious and light.

There is a fenced garden area at the rear of their rooms which enables an open door policy here the children have the opportunity to use the outdoor and indoor areas equally (at all times supervised).

Pre-school have four rooms available to them, their facilities include IT, quiet, imagination and activity areas; sand play and arts and crafts. They have a separate dining area and have direct access to the outdoor area and in the summer an open door policy.

Our spacious garden is used by the children to grow flowers, runner beans, potatoes, strawberries and pumpkins.



Costs vary depending upon age and session. Please contact provider for details.

Provision for special dietary needs
As all our meals are prepared and cooked on the premises we are able to meet individual children's dietary needs. We do not use beef, lamb or pork preferring to offer quorn/veggie products, chicken, turkey or fish. Our menus are on a five week rotation meaning if a child comes only on a Monday they receive five different dinners not the same thing each week.
Can make special cultural provisions
We have worked with several different cultures and introduce words and customs of different cultures into the nursery to cover all children attending
