The Willows have been celebrating the Platinum Jubilee by doing lots of arts and craft activities, afternoon tea, teddy bear picnic and a bbq in the garden where all the children wore crowns they had made this morning.
We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a lovely bank holiday 😊


We are holding an opening evening this Thursday (14th April) from 6:15-8:30pm. We understand that a lot of our current parents/carers haven’t seen where their children learn and thrive, therefore this gives them the opportunity to finally be able to do this. Also any NEW prospective parents are welcome to pop along and meet the management team who will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
If you would like to book an appointment please do not hesitate to contact Ashlea or Laura on 01353 624821 or email [email protected].
We look forward to welcoming you to our nursery


Due to changes within the nursery setting we are continuing to seek new employees that are willing to work 12-6 both term time only and all year round.

If you are interested in either of these roles, then please email [email protected] for further information.

Thankyou ❤️

Towards the end of last year, we started to revamp our main garden area! We have made lots of new equipment and fun things for all the children to explore and enjoy using lots of bits and bobs we found laying around and some things that we were kindly donated by others. The children absolutely love being outdoors especially now there is so much more on offer to them. We have received lots of comments from them including:
“The fairies have been in and brought all these new things”
“This is awesome”
“This is very different”
“Wow, look at that”
“That’s like a forest isn’t it”
And lots more!!

The before and after photos .. ❤️


**Don’t forget your pyjamas this week!**

Staff and children are welcome to come to nursery in their coolest pyjamas all week as we raising money for Crackerjacks Children’s Trust.



Just a reminder that we are closed tomorrow.
Have a happy bank holiday and we look forward to welcoming you all back on Tuesday ☀️

World book day fun at the nursery .. we had all sorts of characters come to visit us!


HaPpY nEw YeAr!! 🥳

After what’s been a crazy busy first week back to 2021, we finish on some positive news for you all!
From Monday 11th January all three of our Out of School Clubs will be reopening, however following the government guidance and the local schools we will only be open to the children of key worker parents/carers or the vulnerable.

We have tried our absolute best to get into contact with the parents/carers however, if your child will be attending the schools and you wish you continue to use our services please do let us know so we can add your child/ren back onto the lists.

Nursery is open as usual ..

See our other posts to find out more exciting news as we welcome not 1 .. not 2 .. but 3 new staff members to our hardworking team!



Good evening all,

As your probably aware, Boris has tonight shut down all of the primary schools with effect of tomorrow (Tuesday 5th January 2021) except those children that are vulnerable or children of key worker parents.

This does mean that unfortunately we are going to have to close both our breakfast and after school clubs until further notice and more clarification is given.

If you are a key worker parent/carer or your child is vulnerable and will be attending the school, and you would need our wraparound services, please let us know by 12.00 on Friday 8th January.
We are going to communicate with all three schools that we currently cater for to give us clarification on weather or not we can still operate on the school sites. Depending on weather they allow us to do this and the numbers that we get confirmed before Friday, then our services may re open from Monday 11th January.

We will keep you updated as and when we know anything further.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Take care & stay safe ❤️


So as we draw to a close to our very odd 2020, we would like to remind parents/carers that if your child develops any symptoms and receives a positive or negative test result then please do let us know and keep us informed via email to [email protected] and we will continue to deal with your emails one by one.
We would like to Thankyou all for your lovely thoughtful words, cards, gifts and continued support as always.
Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy New Year 🎄🎁⛄️🥂

After lots of long days, blood, sweat and tears ..

WELCOME TO PANDAS!! 🎉 it is with great pleasure to announce the opening of our cosy refurbished room within the nursery setting.
Pandas will cater for children aged 16-24months. This is to split up our large aged range baby room which will now only be 3-16months.
The new room will give the older babies more of a stimulating environment to play and learn in and the younger ‘Cubs’ more room to explore and grow.

After only using 2 of our nursery rooms over the past 26weeks, it is now time for both the staff and children to explore new adventures in their rooms.

From Monday 21st September, all of our rooms will be back up and running with the staff being:

Cubs: Shannon & Gemma
Pandas: Charlotte & Katie
Badgers: Rosie & Victoria
Owls: Mia, Chloe & Jade
All other staff members will be working in all of the above rooms dependant on children’s numbers.

That leaves me to say, have a lovely weekend and see you all next week ❤️
Over and out! Xx


***WATCH THIS SPACE***.. announcement later today 🎉


Team building ❤️


Today we don’t only welcome one member of staff back but ..2! 🎉🎉

Chloe and Sally will be returning today in preparation for schools returning next week.

They are both returning to their usual hours and roles within the business. After being off for over 5 months, this morning will consist of settling back into some kind of normality.
