Choosing childcare is one of the most important decisions you will have to make and in order to help you we would be delighted to show you around The Nursery and answer any questions you might have. If you don’t already know someone using The Nursery it is also possible to arrange for you to speak with some of our parents.

Our emphasis is on the care of each child in a warm and safe environment and on providing rich learning experiences which will enhance their physical, social and emotional development. The different age groups are kept busy with a varied programme of activities and, for the older children, a Curriculum based on the Department of Education’s six areas of learning.


Limited numbers in each group ensure that each child is given individual attention and that their needs are known and provided for.
