We understand that choosing early years childcare is one of the most difficult decisions to make, which is why we invite all parents to visit our unique nurseries.

Our friendly staff will be delighted to take you through our day-to-day routines, work with you to ensure your child’s needs are fully met, discuss a settling in plan and provide all the necessary information to put your mind at ease and ensure that both you and your child are happy and feel at home with us.

Please contact us to arrange a viewing at one of our nurseries.

Settling into

We aim for settling in visits to take place as near to a child’s official start date as possible. Visits are usually for 1 hour each time and you may come as many times as you feel are necessary. We have a minimum of two settles. During the first settle a parent stays with the child and discusses the home routine, interests of their child and any individual needs. The second settle is a short visit, for your child to become accustomed to their new environment and the staff team that will be working with them.

If you feel your child may take longer to settle, then you may start visits earlier.On subsequent visits you may extend the time you leave your child until the full hour is 

If you feel your child is experiencing any difficulties being left, the staff will only be too happy to assist you. Please do not hesitate to ask questions and discuss your child’s needs with the staff.


Our childcare service is funded by parental fees. We are also fully committed to ensuring affordable childcare. 

To do this, we aim to maximise access to all families by accepting most Childcare Vouchers available.


The Nursery Education Grant (NEG) is available at each nursery to children, beginning the term following their third birthday. The NEG is also available to some two-year-olds (contact your local council for more information about this).
Further information about Childcare Vouchers, current fees, terms and conditions can be provided by contacting us directly.

There are different types of financial support you may be able to receive to help you with the costs of your childcare and the type of help you can receive will depend on your individual circumstances. For example a proportion of fees may be reclaimable through Working Tax Credits. 

More information can be found from on the Government ‘Childcare Choices’ website.
