We are there for your child and you

Our work has one clear focus: your child's individual needs. In order for us to support your child's development in the best possible way, we employ people with different educational training backgrounds. They all attend regular further training courses, which enable them to bring new ideas and proposals to their daily work - ideas that will also benefit your child!


We are a small and highly qualified team. Our management team are all fully qualified teachers, who believe in educating the whole child. Whilst we recognise that early literacy and numeracy skills are important, we believe that the child's emotional and physical well-being is paramount. We bring a variety of different experiences with us and draw upon our wide knowledge of child development and learning to provide your child with a fun and challenging environment.
