Who we are

Our family run state of the art nursery is perfectly located in the heart of Sheffield Hallam, just off Ecclesall road with plenty of parking.

Our aim is to provide the best possible start to each child’s educational and personal development journey. Our nursery caters for children from 6 weeks to 5 years. We truly appreciate how formative and influential the early years are and want to be a big part of the process of helping develop your child into a confident, inquisitive, happy individual. We promote individuality, self-expression and learning in a safe & fun environment. Even at this young age we believe that skills, qualities and talents that will last a lifetime begin to surface and we promise to identify and help to promote these in the best way possible. Together we can give children the opportunity to maximise their full potential and ensure that they are ready to make their mark in the big wide world!

We strive to be the very best nursery for your child, so we will ensure that every visit to our establishment will be a fun and memorable experience. We fully embrace EYFS and will ensure each child will have every opportunity to access high-quality plan experiences to extend and further their learning in both prime and specific areas.

Our 4  beautifully decorated rooms are spacious and extremely comfortable. Each room is equipped with age appropriate toys and resources; children can participate in a range of activities, which enhances their learning through play. Our children also have full access to our large indoor soft play area.

Food and nutrition are vitally important from an early age and is a key focus for us. Where possible, food used in our meals will come direct from our allotment located within the nursery grounds. We will grow fresh, seasonal produce and teach children how food is created, from seed to the plate. And they will be encouraged to play an active role in producing the food they grow and eat. Meals are centred around organic, fresh and nutritious ingredients. Children will also have access to a sensory garden where they can explore, touch, taste, hear, small and see their surroundings.

We have a very carefully crafted team of child care practitioners who create engaging environment where children can flourish. All staff are qualified to minimum of level 3, please visit our Meet the Team page for more information. Each child will be given a key worker, who will be responsible for their personal learning and development and will support your child on their journey with us. Carefully planned activities and experiences will be specifically designed to ensure your child is making progress and learning lots of new skills as well as lots of fun!
