We are a 60 place, totally independent private day nursery, conveniently located in the grounds of St. Nicholas Park, adjacent to the Northumberland Wildlife Trust Park.

Our primary objective is to provide high quality, professional childcare and 'pre-school' learning facilities for children from 6 weeks old to 5 years of age. The premises are a single storey building situated in a 'parkland' location, surrounded by mature trees and lawns. 

We sit in a large securely fenced garden for the sole use of the children. We comply with the EYFS framework and base our planning and assessment on following the children's interests, through regular observations.


We are open between Monday and Friday 7:30am - 6:00pm and we offer a range of sessions between these times:

Full Time places -7:30AM - 6:00PM
Morning Sessions- 7:30AM - 12:30PM
Afternoon Sessions - 1:00PM - 6:00PM

8:30AM - 11:30AM & 12:30PM - 3:30PM
