An Inspirational Approach

Across our Day Nurseries, our progressive, highly qualified practitioners and teachers are committed to offering children stimulating learning opportunities following the Early Years Foundation Stage which engage each individual child.

Protecting Wellbeing

We promote a healthy lifestyle in a safe, secure environment. Each Nursery has a large purpose - built outdoor play space as well as award-winning indoor learning environments. Nutritionally balanced by a dietician, our award-winning meals are cooked freshly on site every day. We teach children the skills they need to regulate their own behaviour and to assess risk for themselves.

Exceptional Quality

Our multi award-winning, reflective practice is delivered by knowledgeable and experienced practitioners led by committed Group owners who work on site every day. Continual investment, external quality assurance and ongoing development, along with our partnerships with parents, schools and the community, ensures we give each child a strong foundation for future learning.

A Nurturing Experience

Each child is supported and valued; we respect differences, encouraging and enabling each unique child to reach their full potential in a welcoming, happy environment.
