Our aim is to offer children from aged 2 to 5 years the opportunity to learn through play in a fun and happy learning environment, enabling them to become confident, independent learners for life.

We achieve this by providing a safe stimulating environment where children are able to benefit from free flow play and a balance of child initiated activities and adult planned activities. We operate a key person system which allows us to plan for each child’s individual needs, ensuring that we are aware of each child’s stage of development and that they are progressing through the six areas of learning.
