Our large, bright, and colourful open plan setting allows for children to have access to all areas of learning. Our setting is separated into areas of Small World, Construction, Quiet Area, Role Play, Sand/Water, Mark Making and Sensory Area for our little minds to explore.  Our friendly staff engages with each child, encouraging them to learn and play.

There is a separate bathroom area for toileting and nappy changing.

Our setting opens out to a large outdoor play area which helps the children hone their physical capabilities, problem solving skills and social understanding.  We make the most of our outdoor space by getting our children outside each day.  Whether it’s growing flowers, climbing planks, playing with the mud kitchen there is something for every child.
