Hatfield Road was established in 2001 and is a two-storey building which provides a homely environment for all. The nursery has recently under gone a complete refurbishment with all brand new toys and equipment in every room. We provide OUTSTANDING childcare for up to 65 children a day from 3 months to 5 years in a friendly, welcoming home from home setting.
The staff team are passionate about the care they give the children and the customer care the parents receive. The staff are committed to ensure a delivery of a range of indoor activities that promote the developmental stages and interests of the individual child. The children are encouraged to make choices creating opportunities to engage in activities that will promote the social development of children’s language and communication, creativity, individuality and to develop interest in books.
To see children grow from a baby and develop into young children from following their passion is always an achievement and we are always proud to see the children leave us to go to school.
