Meet The Team

Our highly trained staff understand the importance of developing a physical and emotional environment where children feel confident to explore and investigate and find things out for themselves. We believe all children should have the opportunity to play safely but at the same time participate in stimulating activities which will lay a foundation for their schooling and the world they grow up in.  The level of staff ratios is high and our staff are all highly qualified professionals committed to fostering a loving and nurturing environment in which children flourish so you can be assured that your child will feel safe and secure.

All staff are fully qualified in paediatric first aid
