Our Baby Suite

Babies have their own protected out door space where they can play in the fresh air whilst watching the older children at play.

Our cook provides healthy nutritious meals which are planned carefully to specifically  meet our babies dietary needs.

Our Wise Owls Early Years Unit for 3-5 Year Olds

Our Pre-School  is led by a qualified teacher, activities are planned to incorporate play led learning whilst continuing to focus on your child's emotional needs. We strive to encourage your child to develop confidence, independence and to be sociable and happy.  Skills that will enable them to ask questions, find the answers and have the ability to manage future challenges. Our low 1:8 staff ratios will ensure your child has one to one adult attention should they require support.  By capturing your child's interest and enthusiasm together we will see them flourish.  

Our IT Suite encourages children to develop skills and a sound understanding of  how to use technology and gadgets.

Life Outdoors

DSC_4255.jpgOur Nursery is blessed with an amazing outdoor space which provides fantastic learning and challenging opportunities to our children.  Children enjoy being outdoors in all weather, they enjoy building snowmen in the Winter, sweeping and collecting leaves in the Autumn and picnics and sports days in the Spring and SStoke Outside.jpgummer.

Children learn about their environment, bird watching, nature trails, and growing their own vegetables.  

The outdoor equipment provides physical challenge and our sportd sessions sessions promote childrens gross motor skills and co-ordination.

Out of School & Holiday Club

Cheering Children.jpgWe all know that childcare doesn't stop when your child goes to school and it can be necessary to arrange care for them before and/or after school and also in the holidays when you still have to work.

Our out of school areas have been designed specifically for children who attend school and when school is out can relax with friends, take part in some fun activities and enjoy trips to places of interest.  Children are able to access our amazing outdoor space at all times.

We offer breakfast club from 7:30am and then take the children safely to school.  After school we will collect your child and provide their tea.  Our holiday club is available for various sessions including mornings, afternoons, full days, short days or full weeks to suit your requirements.

Stay & Play Sessions

Every Friday morning 9.30 until 10.30 from Friday 1st March for children 2 years and above.

It’s a great way for children to mix with others in the community and play with lots of toys, it also gets parents out of the house and allows you to mingle with other parents and carers.

Activities include: the Sand Pit, Play Doh, Sticking, Sing Songs, Building Blocks, Toy Cars & Dinosaurs, Natural Musical Instruments, Cultural Story Books, and much more!!

Light refreshments will be available; such as apple, banana, apple juice and water.

Please contact us for more information, or just turn up on the day.
