- New Sensory Area
We are very proud to announce the opening of our brand NEW Sensory Area within the nursery, offering our children a place to escape and unwind during the day.
The rich and varied sensory experiences that this offers helps stimulate brain development, and offers a calm and tranquil place for the children to relax and let their exploratory minds evolve.
Suitable for babies through to toddlers, the room can be access by all children in our care, and is especially beneficial to those with additional needs.
To find out more, please ask a member of staff.
- Tax Free Childcare Scheme
The Tax Free Childcare Scheme is a new tax free initiative for parents. For every £8 a parent pays into their childcare account, the government will pay in an extra £2. Parents can get up to £2000 government support per child per year towards their childcare costs. They can then use this money to pay their childcare provider towards their childcare costs.
