COVID-19: Reopening Plans

Your secret garden awaits, we were proud to open our doors this week to help form some sort of normality for your little ones again, and as always we are providing our high quality outstanding care throughout.

Implementing in the moment still to enhance all learning and interests with continuous fun. As shown in our video, our children were very curious and asking lots of questions about PPE. We explained and explored with a fun way of designing our own coloured visors using laminate pouches and ribbon - the children then enforced this within their play, representing from the world around them.

The best part was hearing our children laugh again. The littlest laughs creates our big hearts - thank you for always believing in us. The comeback is going to be much stronger than the setback.

COVID 19: Nursery Mergers

We are doing this in order to continue the support we are providing to all the key workers during this difficult time.
Following government guidelines, we advise that if you are able to make alternate arrangements for childcare, with someone not in at-risk group, then you should avoid bringing your child into nursery. We will still be providing childcare for parents/carers who are in the key worker groups and are unable to make alternate arrangements.

Celebrating 20 Years!

6th March 2020

Celebrating 20 years of providing high quality childcare to the community and helping to shape the next generation.

In the year 2000 a magical moment was created, not only did we hit a millennium but our very first nursery was established ‘West Park Kindergarten’.

A nursery that was founded by Eamonn and Susan Gribben who provided an inspiring environment purposely for young children.

Over the years we have expanded by opening many nurseries in South Tyneside and beyond: Westoe Village Kindergarten, Harton Village Kindergarten, Bede Burn Kindergarten, Rothbury and The Bungalow all with a passionate team who provide and enhance all learning in a range of ways through investigation and exploration to each individual child.

We continue to create and magnify a positive pathway which has been proven by our three recent ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted inspections and would like to thank all parent’s/carers and our dedicated team for their ongoing support and helping us to ‘shape the next generation.’
