“I am a parent myself with three children, and when I opened the Nursery in 1991, it felt there was a need for excellent quality early years childcare where children can be nurtured and developed in a homely environment. I encourage you to come and see for yourself our unique childcare facilities. We very much look forward to meeting you in the future.” Diane Collins – Principal (Cert. Ed)
