Ever rejoicing in all things healthy and natural, our fees include structured yoga and sports sessions and most special of all . regular trips to our 125-foot allotment as the children start their green thumbs early with growing and stocking the nursery with fresh fruit and veg. They learn about composting, recycling, planting, weeding and just enjoying nature. Our large garden is filled with exciting challenges and natural resources. We.ve been highly commended for Nursery of the Year, Preschool of the Year and Nursery Food Awards.

Balancing traditional values e.g. manners, mealtimes and learning the importance of rules with innovative practices e.g. website communication, online learning journals and digital photos, is something we do with natural flare. We take the best of international practices like Montessori and Reggio Emelia and mix them up to inspire our children to explore and learn.
