First class childcare in Stoke-on-Trent

The nursery is situated on one level to allow ease of access.  We have wide corridors, low level light switches, and easy wheel chair access if required.  A disabled toilet is also available. Three of the four playrooms have direct access to a large outdoor play area.  The outdoor play area has soft flooring to minimise injuries, a sensory walk, baby area and two large canopies to make the garden accessible in all weathers. Activities and areas in the garden are designed with the seven areas of learning in mind.

The children are grouped according to their age and follow the Early Years Foundation Stage
