A very warm welcome to you and your family
We understand that finding childcare is a daunting task for any parent and we hope to put your mind at ease and help you make an informed decision. We have many years of experience delivering high quality childcare and education and your child’s happiness and welfare is paramount to us.
Why is independence important?
Independence is about learning to do things for oneself, which includes making decisions and taking on responsibility. These are hugely important skills for children to learn to cope with in adulthood.
Building confidence - We know that when independence grows, a child's confidence also grows. As they master new skills or take on some responsibility, they begin to see themselves as being capable. This gives them added confidence and makes them more likely to try out new things.
you said, we did!
Parent's said our Holiday Club prices were too expensive, we listened and reduced the cost to £15 per day.
Little acorns lending library
If you did not know, we have a 'Little Acorns Lending Library' situated in the entrance of nursery.
