The nursery is conveniently situated at Charis House on Hardwick Square East. It has its own private entrance and is accessible by wheelchair. Outside there's an all-weather soft play area and adventure garden.

A spacious indoor play area ensures that children don't miss out on active play when the weather is unsuitable for outdoor play. Activities include climbing frames, trampoline, slides and ride-on toys and a special area for the 'Messy' activities that children love so much. These include water and sand play and free painting.

Additional information

We serve the local community by providing high quality pre-school education for all children - regardless of their parent/carer's financial status. Costs must be covered of course, but profit is not what motivates us. Parents who are experiencing financial difficulty are encouraged to talk to our nursery supervisor - and not stop bringing their child, (or hesitate to register them for a place). We do our best to help in cases of genuine hardship.
