A lovely fresh and bright new nursery set on the edge of the Leicestershire countryside.The children are stimulated and educated through play and the outdoors whatever the weather. It has a lovely "home from home" feel, with friendly staff who treasure your little one as much as you do.

Sharon Mckinnon-Mitchell

I wasnt sure how my "clingy" 1 year old would adapt to nursery but now she waves us off and cant wait to go! Everyone is so understanding of all the children and have really bought my girl out of her shell. She loves mixing with other children now, Although she doesn't need to be in nursery i am so glad i decided to let her as she seems to be learning a lot more and becoming very talkative!
