We have bright, spacious playrooms spread over 3 floors. Each age group has free-flow rooms to explore and experience awe and wonder. There are lots of opportunities for messy & creative play, physical activity, and role play – inspiring curiosity and encouraging children to learn in an engaging and inviting environment.

All our equipment is catered to the children’s ages using natural and holistic resources.

Our outdoor space gives opportunities for climbing, jumping, digging, balancing & running. We have a mud kitchen and areas to explore nature. We love outdoor play, so be prepared for your little ones to have lots of muddy fun!

Our in-house chef cooks our tasty and nutritious food on site every day, and water and snacks are available throughout the day.

Our team of qualified, caring & experienced staff ensure the children are cared for in a safe, nurturing and fun environment, with endless opportunities to learn.

Our rooms

We cater for children from three months to 5 years old. There is a different floor for each age group. 

Baby Snug

Our Baby Snug is for babies from 3 months to 2 years. We have a wide range of age appropriate resources, and we follow the child’s interests & developmental needs, to create learning opportunities and invitations to play that are focused on each child. There is lots of space for babies to relax, sleep, crawl, and explore new sights and sounds to awaken the senses.

The Baby Snug is the perfect place for our youngest children to begin their
nursery journey.

Toddler Den

The Toddler Den is for children aged 2 – 3 years, and has spaces for exploration, play, and new experiences. The toddlers enjoy a slightly more structured curriculum plan, with increased opportunities for the children to develop their independence. Creative play, colourful and textured resources, singing, stories, outdoor play, and nursery rhymes are how we learn every day.

Potty training generally happens in this room, and our staff will always support as the children become more independent.

Pre-School Study

Our Pre-School Study is the next step in your childs nursery journey, from age 3 until they go to school. To encourage school readiness, we expand the children’s knowledge by building on their interests, and create activities and opportunities that focus on reading, writing, maths, and science – ensuring children are learning as they play. All activities are carefully planned to cover all areas of learning.
