We've been at our site in Baring road since 1997. Steve and Ellen couldn't find a nursery they really liked for their son so they opened their own! They wanted their child to be looked after by loving carers in an environment rich in active learning opportunities, but most of all they wanted him to be happy, confident and have lots of fun.
Steve and Ellen are very hands-on in the running of the nursery and this helps us to keep our costs down. Our competitive pricing, however, in no way compromises the quality of the provision we offer.
All of our staff are qualified to at least Level 3 Early Years Care and Education. In addition Ellen, the owner and head of curriculum is an Early Years Teacher and Ade, lead practitioner for the Under 3's, is an Early Years Professional.
We are a family nursery in every sense of the word - many of our staff came to us from school and have grown up with us - and even have their own children here. Steve and Ellen now have grandchildren in the nursery and insist that every child is treated as family.
Our philosophy hasn't changed in 20 years and is reflected in how we recruit our staff, the equipment we provide for the children, their routines, what they eat and, most important of all to us, how we interact with them. Our priority is establishing loving, trusting, relationships with children so that they feel happy and secure.
