We have 4 large, bright, stimulating playrooms for children, with 3 of them having direct access to an outdoor space. We are also lucky enough to have access to large open countryside, which is very easily accessible from the Centre. All children's meals are prepared on site by our Nursery Chef, who ensures that all the children receive healthy nutritious meals using locally sourced seasonal produce. All mealtimes are carried out in a warm homely nurturing environment, where staff join in on stimulating conversations with the children.
