About our Palm Bay nursery

Our nursery in Palm Bay is conveniently situated on Northdown Road. We have a large garden area with a climbing frame, sand and water play and planting area. There are two large, beautiful and bright classrooms. We are very close to the library and park, for fun and exciting outings.

The nursery opened in 2007. It was rated Good in all areas by Ofsted in July 2017. The nursery and team of staff are now working towards achieving Outstanding.

Our Palm Bay nursery is open all year round Monday to Friday and takes children from 3 months up to 5 years. 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. Funded places are available for 2–5 year olds subject to certain criteria.

The 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. We also offer 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, as well as carry 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.
