We have been open since August 2015 and we offer nursery care to young children from 3 months to five years, along with before and after school care for children at local schools. Our indoor space is light, bright and calm. It is designed to ensure that all children feel comfortable there and are able to learn. We offer children play based learning and sensory activities with our team of supportive, caring adults.
All the children use our extensive outdoor area. There is lots of space to run around and be boisterous, as well as areas for quiet thinking and learning. Each room has their own dedicated garden and play area. We also have a woodland area, which is great for exploring. We have several raised beds and planting areas, the children enjoy planting fruit and vegetables rom seed and seeing them grow.
CARE OUTSIDE OF WORKING HOURS
We provide before and after school care. We offer breakfast and a place to feel at home before the children go to Farndon school. We believe it is important that these children can come in after school and relax, chill and play after a busy day of learning at school. Children can play indoors or outside and enjoy a range of activities. We listen to children read if you would like us to. We offer nutritious meals and snacks, including tea for school children. We are open until 6.00 in the evening to give you chance to get home from work. If you need longer hours we are happy to discuss this with you.
We have a holiday club that runs during the holidays for English and Welsh schools. At holiday club we offer a variety of activities, crafts, cooking, drama and games. We go on local low cost trips.
