Our children are aged from 3 months to 5 years old. The newly refurbished nursery has been purposely designed from a child’s point of view. Our days are active with all sorts of exciting and adventurous learning experiences, every day.
The nursery is conveniently located in the grounds of the spacious School House and close proximity to Middleton town centre. This historic building dates back to 1842 and from our inception in March 2016, we have further renovated the building and grounds, ideal for babies and children to explore and discover the love of learning, whilst triumph in their achievements.
