WE OFFER a warm and caring place for children to learn, play and grow and aim to ensure that your children's time with us is both fun and educational.  We provide a stimulating environment to foster natural curiosity and promote child development, with a range of activities to extend their knowledge and experiences.  We aim to allow all children to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding to their full potential, during the time they spend with us.

WE BELIEVE that each child is an individual and that all children should be treated equally, regardless of their needs, gender, race, religion, culture, ethnic background or ability.  We believe the best way for a child to learn is through play and that by forming strong partnerships with parents and carers we can achieve the best for your child.  Read our Special Educational Needs (SEND) Offer to find out how we support children with additional needs.

OUR STAFF include a Manager, Deputy Manager, Business Administrator, 6 Early Years Practitioners, 2 Early Years Apprentices and 1 Support Staff. All of our staff have full enhanced DBS clearance and attend regular Paediatric First Aid and Safeguarding training.  We are also pleased to offer student work experience placements and Apprenticeships wherever possible.

OUR FACILITIES are based in a large, single-level community hall with kitchen, office/meeting room and accessible toilet facilities.  We have a large, all weather, secure outdoor area, accessible to wheelchair users and those with physical disabilities.  As well as a large selection of outdoor play equipment, our outdoor area boasts an insect hotel, vegetable garden, mud kitchen and a large playhouse.

OUR ACTIVITIES: We provide a large selection of educational toys, games, books and creative resources and also host weekly scheduled activities aimed at promoting holistic child development.  Our Monday morning session is a woodland session called "Muddy Mondays", held in the grounds of Bishop Henderson Primary School (just across the road).  On Tuesday mornings, it's "Tuneful Tuesdays"; a sensory music and singing session with Music Bugs.  On Wednesday mornings we host our "Workout Wednesdays" physical activity sessions with James, our qualified Sports Coach and in the afternoon, we have another visit from Music Bugs for 'Midweek Music'( moving to Thursday afternoons from September 2023). On Thursday mornings, it's "Tasty Thursdays" when we stay in to cook or bake varied homemade treats.  And on Friday mornings we host our "Fitness Friday" physical activity sessions with James, our qualified Sports Coach
