The nursery offers a safe and secure environment both indoors and outdoors in which children can freely explore and learn through a wide variety of play experiences.
Within this happy environment, children can grow and develop to their full potential physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually. We promote positive behaviour and encourage children to respect each other and their surroundings.
