Ethos & FAQ

FAQ's

Have you any vacancies for my child?

- Yes, probably, but spaces are filling up fast! 

Do you go anywhere outside of nursery?

- Yes! Because we have to pack our outside garden away each week, we cant’ have permanent features such as swings, slides, climbing frames etc- so we take our children to Florence Park and on outings to places that can provide what we cannot.

We also visit the local library, and may take children to local attractions such as museums, farms and other appropriate places of interest such as the theatre.

How do you teach my child anything?

- We follow the Early Years curriculum, and we have a flexible timetable that allows for children to participate in large and small group experiences

Our ethos

We pride ourselves on being a friendly, fun loving and well qualified team who strive to provide the best care for your child. The children come first, and we ensure that they all have their individual needs met, so that we can help them reach their full learning potential, and be happy in our care.

About us

We believe that children learn through play, and so we use child initiated play and games to provide learning opportunities alongside our adult planned activities.

We deliver the best childcare and education by ensuring that all our staff have in-depth knowledge and understanding gained through continuing professional development and training.

Our friendly, highly-trained staff are focused on providing fun and education. They work to ensure your child develops as an individual whilst helping to nurture and encourage learning through discovery and enjoyment.

Not only do we offer education through creativity and play but pride ourselves in understanding the importance of instilling confidence and enthusiasm from an early age. We want our little ones to feel secure and happy from the start so they can’t wait to come back tomorrow!
