Designed by a Parenta product
Founded in November 1993 we have over 21 years experience in the provision of outstanding care and education. Our reputation has been built upon recommendations from parents and other professionals who engage with children. We are very proud to have been recognised for our excellence and innovation in the delivery of childcare through a number of National Awards and have achieved three outstanding Ofsted results.
The Nursery is run by a very strong management team of three, whose roles are all supernumerary. The drive and direction in which the nursery keeps moving forward and keeps ahead of all changes and innovations in education within the early years is down to their specialist roles and expertise within the childcare sector.
