We pride ourselves on providing fun activities, happy days and an environment where great friendships are made between the children. We also have a great relationship with our parents and carers ensuring they feel confident to leave their child in our care.

Everything the children learn is through play whether that is messy play, building pirate ships, making dens or painting a masterpiece. We ensure that all seven areas of learning are covered in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum alongside this we monitor and observe each childs development.

The free flow play into our garden can offer so many learning opportunities we have our very own outside play space where we can do more grown up activities. They have the space and freedom to run around in all weathers as well as grow their own vegetables and plants all year round which they can pick and eat when we give them to our wonderful chef Michelle. We hatch chicks every Easter which is always great fun.
