Taking Care of Little Adventures


Nurturing Place

We are a nurturing place… where children are cared for in a safe space as part of the pre-school family. Our warm and experienced team, usually parents themselves-are dedicated to helping our little ones grow in confidence, build friendships and become adaptable before their all-important transition to school.


Fun Place

We are a fun place… that offers a wealth of opportunities to build self-esteem. Learning through nature in our stunning village surroundings means we are often found splashing in the stream or making dens in the community orchard. We offer a rich range of indoor play as well as regular art, music, baking and PE.


Practical Place

We are a practical place… where parents are valued. School meals, flexible sessions and the ability to use 30-hour funding at any time are just a few of the things we do to fit around modern lifestyles. Accredited to EarlyYears Alliance Stage 3 (the highest level in the scheme), we are very proud of the level of care we are able to provide our preschoolers.
