We believe that children have a natural enthusiasm for learning and our highly qualified staff support and encourage this by providing engaging and fun opportunities for children to develop their abilities in a supportive and caring environment.

We maintain a ratio of 1 staff member to 13 children in Nursery School session times and 1 staff member to 8 children during Breakfast, Lunch and After School Club sessions.

Every child will be allocated a key person, who will be your first contact in nursery who will get to know your child really well through observations, interactions and through communicating with you. They will plan to meet your child's interests and next steps.
