Set within the grounds of Laira Green Primary School, we have the privilege of being able to use many of the school's excellent facilities, such as the music room, ICT suite, playgrounds and halls.

Our setting has an open-plan layout and has a lot of natural light, which is enjoyed by the children, and creates a home from home feel.

Greenshoots were praised by Ofsted gaining an OUTSTANDING rating in April 2019.

We have a team of highly trained staff who work closely with parents/carers to ensure their child receives the best possible care and early years education. In our most recent inspection report, Ofsted commended Greenshoots for the 'good rapport built with families'.
