We are Ofsted registered and achieved an “OUTSTANDING” in July 2011 and previously in February 2008. We are particularly proud of this achievement, as only 2% of nurseries countrywide achieve this superb rating. We provide excellent quality childcare within small friendly groups within a caring and stimulating environment. We endeavour to work closely with all parents and carers to meet the individual needs of all of the children in our care.

We hold a level 3 e-Quality Counts Accreditation with The National Day Nursery Association; this being the highest grading that can be achieved. This kite mark acknowledges the superb standards of care and education given by all of our qualified staff, which is over and above the requirements laid out by Ofsted. We obtained this Kite mark for the third time in 2014, having previously achieved this accreditation in 2005 and 2010.

We will try our best to accommodate your child at the dates and times you request, and a waiting list form is enclosed for you to submit to us as soon as possible. We operate an ‘Open Door Policy’, and welcome you to visit our Nursery whenever you wish, to see for yourself the high standard of care we give to all of the children we look after.
