Our Nursery in Palm Bay opened in 2007.  It was rated “Good” in all areas by Ofsted in July 2017. The nursery and staff team are now working towards achieving Outstanding.

The nursery is open all year round Monday to Friday and takes children from 3mth old up to 5 year olds. We offer a variety of sessions to meet your requirements. The nursery is one of our smallest and has a very cosy home from home atmosphere.

The nursery offers funded places for 2-5 year olds subject to certain criteria.

Our Palm Bay nursery is all on the ground floor. Children are looked after in either our Caterpillars or Butterflies Room. We are lucky to have a large and exciting garden for the children to play in. Both classrooms have doors into the garden to allow the children easy access for outside play.

The children are always busy taking part in fun and exciting activities. The nursery also offers weekly Yoga, Dance, and Sport carried out by professionals.

The nursery has a Montessori Teacher along with a Qualified Teacher who are not counted in ratio to work on a one to one basis with the children along with carrying out group activities.

We have a very well qualified and experienced staff team. Staff are kept up to date and develop their knowledge by attending regular training courses.
