Known as Little Faces, this facility provides a safe and stimulating environment for children aged 0-4.
Open 51 weeks a year, our nursery is a big hit with parents and children alike. Read some of the glowing reviews below:

“The nursery and pre-school are a lovely environment. My little boy asks when am I going to pre-school, as he loves going so much. The staff know him very well. He has built strong relationships with staff and other children. They provide a good range of activities and really teach the children good behaviour too”

“My little girl loves going to nursery. I believe this is due to the warm, friendly and caring environment. The staff are very helpful and are always happy to answer any questions. They can always provide a rundown of the day so you don’t feel you have missed out.”
