Our aim is to provide a safe and happy caring environment, where each child can develop to their full potential, leading to 'School Readiness'

'School Readiness' consists of children having the confidence to socialise, to separate from their main carers, to become independent with personal routines, and to develop an inquisitive nature about their surroundings with an enthusiasm to learn.

We provide the children in our care with a wide range of experiences in a spacious open plan environment inside and out. Indoors we provide an ample play space covering seven play areas, allowing for both active and quieter play simultaneously for children's varying needs throughout the day. In all play areas, age and stage appropriate toys are always available, as is access to Apple iPads, computers, and cameras to learn about and understand the use of technology.

The Bi-fold doors allow the children to have free flow access to our safe and secure garden where all ages can play on the Nunnington play grass and a Little Tikes junior activity gym. Our cedar chalet houses a range of toys including ride on vehicles, trikes, play kitchens, baby trampolines, slides, seesaws, stepping stones, sand toys, water play, paddling pools, tents, tunnels, Active Kids equipment (which the children have loved collecting vouchers for), and more boxes of toys for indoors. Furthermore, we have a huge sunken ball pit which is covered to protect us from the elements, as well as an electronic blind to go over the rest of the garden, and a covered chalkboard tree house!

We regularly go on outings in our seventeen seated red minibus called 'Bertie', to include visits to National Trust sites, Godstone Farm, garden centres, nature trails and parks around Surrey. We also walk or use our buggies to visit local places such as nearby parks, the library, the shops, or we take a trip on a local bus or a journey on the train! In addition to this, extra-curricular activities include sports sessions for the preschoolers, and in-house visits from ZooLab, Moo Music and Kids Classic Parties.
