The Owner/Head Teacher Cherida Daniel has obtained the Early Years Professional Status (EYPS) which is aimed at providing well-skilled and highly motivated graduate practitioners with the expertise to lead high quality practice. We have a strong consistent team of qualified teachers and nursery assistants, many of whom have been with the nursery for years.

Two thirds of the sessions are child led where children have a choice of a wide range of equipment and activities, during this time staff are interacting with individuals or groups of children, guiding, observing and taking detailed records of them which enables us to support the individual child well. The children are encouraged to spend the other third of time engaged in adult led activities. We have specialist sessions which include music, french, dance, football, forest school and pony riding.
