Early Years Foundation Stage is overseen by an experienced qualified Early Years teacher and all other staff are qualified to Level 3 as a minimum. All hold extra qualifications and checks in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage Welfare Requirements.
We are a friendly, welcoming and happy setting with a strong ethos of being flexible to meet the needs of today's modern family needs - we do not stipulate that you have to do a minimum number of days / sessions - we leave that for you to decide. We offer morning / full day / afternoon sessions from 8am - 6pm Monday - Friday. We also offer adhoc/hourly childcare.
All our prices include healthy snacks / home cooked meals all prepared on site by our own cook using local produce. All our meat is delivered fresh each week from local butchers along with our milk and dairy products from our local milkman.
All children are special and we ensure that your child's individual needs are our priority - we ensure that your child develops and progresses across all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage in a fun and exciting way that they enjoy and is of their interest and capability.
Free 15 hour entitlement for children the term following their 3rd Birthday - you can take this flexibly (within the period of 8am-6pm) to fit in with individual requirements

Naughty but nice Puddings!
Check out our delicious puddings, my favourite is the limoncello trifle, not suitable for the kids, but there are some other scrummy recipes that the whole family can enjoy! Take a look in our pudding section for recipes to make summer BBQ's and eating alfresco all the more tasty! My girls LOVE the chocolate pizza - making it, but mostly eating it!
Over the weekends and holidays there are always times when your children need some chill out time, or to fill an hour or so, or they say the dreaded 5 letter word - BORED! Well, our KidsZone is here to rescue you and them from these moments. Full of puzzles, colouring in sheets and activities from films and programmes there is lots to keep busy!
