Welcome to our nursery...
We are delighted that our latest Ofsted Inspection (May 2016), resulted in a GOOD outcome. We are very proud to have achieved this result.
The nursery caters for children from 3 months to 5 years, we have bright, spacious, age appropriate rooms each with their own gardens. We are open from 7.30am offering busy parents a chance to start their day early and we close at 6pm.
Our nursery is situated on the Bath Road, conveniently located next to Sainsburys and McDonald’s. We have our own private car park making access to the nursery easy for parents with small children.
Our children have lots of opportunities to fill their tummies as we offer Breakfast, mid-morning snack then a cooked lunch and pudding, this is followed in the afternoon with a High Tea. Our chef prepares delicious meals for the children and all our food is cooked from fresh with no added additives. Our chef can cater for any specific dietary requirements and we were awarded 5 stars in our EHO inspection.
Our Busy Babies room has a black and white area which enhances your baby's senses and simulates their development encouraging them to explore and investigate their surroundings. We also have a quiet Lilac area for those quiet moments, when needed.
Toddlers do Wake and Shake to get those bodies moving which helps with their physical development. In the toddlers room we start to encourage those important independent skills which will be needed later on in life. We help parents with their child’s potty training and encourage their children to share and take turns, which is very difficult at this age.
In our pre-school room our children get the opportunity to do cooking and gardening. They also get many opportunities to become independent learners, making their own decisions enabling them to be prepared later on for school.
All our rooms are very spacious and our staff are highly qualified and motivated in ensuring that your child will have fun whilst growing and developing. We have a Key Person system and every child has their own Learning Journal which records their development which is then shared with you at our parent evenings.
We also have a parent partnership group which we encourage all parents to join.
We hold Stay and Play sessions every Friday 10am - 11am, so come along and meet our team and experience nursery life.
We look forward to seeing you soon

What our customers say…
Friendliness of the staff/ability to play outside a lot/ variety of activities on offer.
All of the pre-school staff are incredibly open, warm and friendly - it's clear that the children's well-being comes first and her father and I never feel rushed when discussing her day with them.
My child has always been very happy at nursery. Even when she has had a setback in her confidence the staff have been very supportive and encouraging towards her and us as her parents.
They have supported her wonderfully with her additional needs and I always feel confident when picking her up that every member of staff know all about her and how her day has been.
