A little about us


We base all our daily activities with the children on the 7 key stages of learning, which are Communication and Language, Physical Development, Personal Social and Emotional Development, Literacy, Mathematics, Understanding the world and expressive Art and Design.


To keep things fresh for the children, each term we are joined by guests, including Zoolab, Mrs Melody and the Lane Academy, who engage the children in a variety of different amazing ways.


With Tapestry - our secure online portal - you'll never miss out on any important parts of your child's development, as moments of complete joy and insight are captured by your child's key person, so that you can enjoy them later in the comfort of your sofa at the end of a hard day.


When you visit the setting with your child you will meet the team of inspirers, educators, dancers, singers, cuddlers and allround superstars, who will take great care of your child throughout their time with us.
