That’s why we support you at the earliest stage, so you’ve got all the information and advice to make a confident decision about childcare. Whether you are expecting your first child, your fourth, or are adopting, we help you plan for life with baby.

Depending on the safety guidelines at your local nursery, you will be able to speak with our staff, ask questions and enjoy an in-person or virtual nursery tour, all before baby arrives. Our nurseries also offer taster sessions, drop-in hours and stay and play days. The first day at nursery can be as nerve-wracking as it is exciting, so we offer free settling in sessions to allow you and your baby to get used to the new surroundings.

Our expert staff are full of knowledge and can advise you on sleep routines, formula feeds, weaning, how we store breast milk and more. Even with that expertise, we follow the feeding and sleeping routine your baby has at home as closely as possible. No one knows your baby like you, so we also take your lead on weaning baby and trying new foods.

Every nursery practitioner is First Aid trained and there are specialist SEND staff in each nursery, there to support children who have special educational needs or a disability.

Our focus on parent partnerships means that you’ll be kept up-to-date through the whole process, from enquiry to your baby’s first day. It doesn’t stop there though – alongside daily progress updates, we provide home learning activities, and stay and play sessions, keeping you involved in the community.

We are excited to be part of every child’s journey and look forward to meeting you both soon.
