Hours of Opening

We are open weekdays from 8am until 6pm and the nurseries are open for 48 weeks per year. We always close during the last two weeks of August, and over the two week Christmas and New Year period. The exact dates can be given at least one year in advance. We have found that through closing during these traditional holiday periods, we are able to provide better continuity of care for the children. All staff can take annual leave together and the need for unfamiliar supply staff is greatly reduced.


We carry full employer’s and public liability insurance with Sun Alliance International.

The current certificate is displayed throughout the year on nursery notice boards in the reception areas.
