Early Years

The Owl’s Nest Nursery is a friendly, spacious and welcoming environment. We aim to offer the highest standard of care for children aged 18 months to 4 years. The emphasis is on providing a bright, spacious and welcoming environment with qualified, experienced, competent and friendly staff, who have incredible enthusiasm for teaching and learning. We tailor our curriculum to accommodate the needs of each and every child in our care, whilst monitoring their progress, development and well-being. Children learn and grow in confidence, through a well-balanced range of indoor and outdoor activities.

By recognising that every child is unique, our teachers observe each child and provide a structured and fun learning environment to extend their skills and prepare them for school.
