Our philosophy

Our primary aim is to work in partnership with you to provide continuity of care in a safe, nurturing, home from home environment.


Providing a broad range of learning opportunities through natural play offers an abundance of fresh and exiting experiences for each child. 

We track children's learning though a secure online platform which allows you to receive instant notifications on your Childs day with us.  

Our setting is not only for young children but right up to the age of 12years. We have technology accessible for home work support and have a range of equipment and resources for all ages and stages of development. 

Our team offer over 16 years combined expertise in both a nursery, after school clubs and a home based childcare settings. We are continuously adapting our skills and knowledge to keep up with best practise and pride ourselves on the face that we are always looking to improve so we can offer the best care and opportunities we can.

We offer childcare for children aged 0yrs to 12yrs and have an abundance of experience with special educational needs and disabilities and duel language children.

Open 5 days a week and operate from 6am till 6.30pm (but we are not limited to these times). We are registered for over night care. Pickups and drop offs for the Newquay are available please enquire.
