Our Bretonside nursery has a homely feel to allow easy transitions for children moving between the baby, toddler and preschool rooms, with a number of exciting resources readily available for them to investigate.

Children have the opportunity to explore nature through the well-utilised garden and mud kitchen. The recently revamped rooms in the nursery are constantly changing based on the children's interests.
