The Nursery is staffed by a team of highly qualified and experienced practitioners, committed to delivering the range of experiences and opportunities fundamental to children's learning and development.
We work closely with parents and carers to help the children make the most of their Nursery experiences. Staff are always on hand for a chat or to discuss any issues, and we have regular 'Open House' events such as our slideshows and sing-song sessions to which parents and carers are warmly invited.
