We are called Play 2 Learn because we believe that play provides a foundation from which children can build a bright and positive future.

Play enables children to:

  • be imaginative and creative

  • feed their natural curiosity helping them to understand and interact with the world around them

  • discover their talents and develop their personality

  • learn about sharing, decision-making and teamwork

Play makes learning fun and helps children become happy and successful grown-ups.



Our values

We strive to achieve our mission by upholding a set of core values: 


Children first

We put the individual needs of your child first by providing an environment that is healthy, happy and safe. Our freshly prepared meals, coupled with our enhanced curriculum, ensures that your child benefits socially, emotionally, physically and intellectually, and is well prepared to continue their learning at school. 



Everyone deserves equal opportunities regardless of their race, gender, religion or additional needs. Our warm and welcoming culture is one that reflects society’s values of freedom, diversity and mutual respect. 


Parent partnerships

You know your child better than anyone. By working together, we can ensure your child’s needs are met in the best possible way so they can flourish and become ready for life at school. 



We select passionate, motivated individuals and empower them to deliver the highest standards of childcare amongst a supportive, inspiring and innovative team.  


Continual improvement

Small, daily improvements lead to significant results over time. We work hard to create an outstanding learning environment through ongoing training, reflection, feedback and collaboration. 

Our approach

Every child deserves a champion - an adult that will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists they become the best they can possibly be.

We are ready to educate and inspire your child from birth until they start school

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) forms the foundation of our curriculum. We enhance the EYFS by adding our special mix of love, care and attentiveness to everything we do. Our extra-curricular clubs, activities and special events enrich your child’s experience, helping them to develop as a person. 

Your child will have a ‘key person’ who champions their learning, inclusion and development at nursery. The key person’s goal is to help your child reach their full potential. They will build a strong relationship with your child and plan activities based on their interests, level of confidence and development. 

Our team

We are a dynamic team who treat each other like family and go the extra mile to look after you and your child. Together, we strive to provide a creative environment that inspires children to learn through play.
