A lovely nursery, very caring and enthusiastic staff who work well together. A very varied timetable with plenty of extra curricular activities. Lovely setting. I really like the ability of the nursery to utilise the wide facilities the school provides like the swimming pool, library, Forest School, gym. I thoroughly enjoy the performances that are put on for the parents like Christmas songs, Harvest Festivals. My children have all been so happy here.
