Playful Environments
Our Rooms

We have a wide range of rooms available for our little one’s to make use of, providing a safe and comfortable environment.

The children can move freely around their specific room and accompanying garden areas for outdoor play.

Mr Mischief’s Room

6 months – 2 years

In this room there are lots of different tactile areas for the children to explore and discover. All activities are designed and planned to meet each child’s individual needs. The furniture is at different heights to encourage playing at different levels for children who are becoming more physically developed.

Mr Happy’s Room

2 years – 3 years

There is a variety of playing areas in this room (home corner, cosy tent with a bubble tube, book corner with sofas & cushions, construction, jigsaw table, play dough table, sand & water areas and a creative messy table). The children also have constant access to our spacious & secure outdoor playground.

Mr Tickle’s Room

3 years- 4 years

Our pre-school room is based on the first floor in our nursery and is split between 3 rooms where all the children can freely move around and have access to all playing areas in these rooms. All rooms have continuous provision areas, sand & water areas and laptops/tablets containing games.

Miss Messy Room

Out of School Club

Our out of school room is a converted garage and outhouse that the children can play and learn in a fun & safe environment. We have a computer, lego area, books, board games and access to our large garden with artificial grass – no muddy clothes or shoes to deal with!


Nursery Fees

We aim to be as competitively priced as we possibly can, passing on all savings to the parents whenever we’re in a position to do so.

We do have free childcare places available ALL YEAR ROUND and you may also be entitled to some free childcare hours – get in touch with us to find out more.
