A private day nursery, with a nurturing ethos, we aim to support the wellbeing of children and families.   With a play-based pedagogy, we plan in the moment and stimulate the curiosity of the children to support their learning.  We provide opportunities for children to engage with concepts and foster skills for learning such as reasoning, creativity and problem solving.  We provide all children with a learning environment that is enabling, stimulating and encourages them to explore new things.  Our passionate practitioners spark the curiosity of children using open-ended resources and authentic materials, that help children to develop an appreciation of the natural world.  Rather than instructing children, we offer  a range of open ended possibilities, to enable children to feel intrinsically motivated to explore and investigate through play, including taking calculated risks and learning from mistakes.  We support creative child-initiated play, and believe  Imagination is at the heart of learning through storytelling, role play, arts and drama.
