Creating the future by inspiring the moment.

Together we develop sociable, articulate, responsible, caring children with a tolerance, understanding and respect for each other and their community.

Our Growing Places approach is inspired by the values of the Reggio Emilia nurseries and pre-schools in Italy. This is an inspirational approach that builds a culture that respects childhood and allows each child to have daily opportunities to play, explore, discover, communicate and develop tolerant, understanding relationships.

Bringing together, children, parents and staff in a journey of education.

We provide a range of opportunities to encourage children to explore, think for themselves, find solutions and know that it is ok to make mistakes.

In doing so, we build children’s resilience, self-esteem and self-belief, encouraging positive attitudes to future learning.

We believe them to be born curious, capable and competent learners. Our knowledgeable and highly educated Educators and Playworkers’ facilitate these deep learning opportunities with a secure knowledge of child development theory in practice.

All clubs are registered with Ofsted and provide a variety of opportunities including sport, games, creative play, cooking, IT and outdoor fun.

Holiday Clubs

Holiday Clubs provide you with peace of mind through the long school holidays, occupying even the most active of children. Regular day and overnight camping trips are organised to ensure children experience numerous outdoor challenges and hands-on activities.

We are proud to offer free holiday club spaces as part of the HAF scheme for children who receive benefits related free school meals. In addition, 15% of places will be made available to other vulnerable children, as defined by the Council.
