Our Nursery

Our Pre-school is a happy, caring and nurturing environment which engages children and parents in the child's learning.  We cater for children aged 2 - 5 years.

Our staff provide quality learning, with atttention to the child's individual needs and understanding.  We maintain a good adult to child ratio, which enables the child to have one-to-one attention.

Children can access all funded childcare offers, including 30 hours, plus tax-free childcare.
