We’ve worked really hard to create an environment that is not only welcoming and homely, but also encourages creativity and development, and we’re incredibly proud of the result.
“It’s been a challenging year for parents. Choosing the right nursery is never easy, even in the best of times, so we’d like to encourage parents to take advantage of our opening offer and book an appointment so we can discuss the ways we can support them and their early years needs in the future.”
Featuring calming, light colours and soft wood furniture, the nursery has been designed to give encourage children to take part in a variety of activities, from yoga to creative play, to help develop motor and cognitive skills. All rooms will also have access to a free-flow garden.
