Facilities – Westcliff

"Fun, Relaxed and above all different!"

Our nursery accommodation is specifically designed and arranged to meet the needs of young, Pre-school children. Our outdoor facilities are unrivalled.  We have a huge garden and as well as our many outdoor activities, we employ a gardener who works with the children sowing, planting and growing a wide range of flowers and vegetables.  We have noticed a marked improvement in children’s attitude towards tasting and eating new foods since they have been involved in growing their own!  All the "Fun, Relaxed and above all different!"accommodation has been adapted to provide a better quality learning environment and we are proud of our commitment to continuous improvement.

Although our children meet together at the beginning and end of the day, at mealtimes and at outdoor playtime, we have always found that each age group benefits from its own facilities and stage related activities.
