    How to Develop a Peaceful Bedtime Routine

    April 30, 2018

    Many parents dread the time of day when it’s time to wrestle the kids to bed. When children resist going to sleep, the house is filled with whining and screams of “no” and “I don’t want to” where every step of brushing their teeth, putting on their pyjamas and finally getting them into bed is a battle. It’s no surprise that parents fall onto the couch after the war exhausted thinking of where the evening has gone. But it doesn’t have to be like this.
    Whether you may believe it or not, a relaxing and peaceful bedroom routine is possible and

    7 Common Nursery Worries and How to Overcome Them

    April 15, 2018

    When our little ones are going to nursery or school for the first time, it can be both exciting and nerve-wracking. For parents, there are worries about how your child will cope away from you and if they’ll make friends, and for our children, they may have a lot of worries as they have so many new things that they will be facing.
    While it may be tempting to succumb to this worry, it is really important that parents keep things positive and express excitement for nursery or school (even if they don’t feel that way), and if your child

    How to Recognise if Your Child is Stressed and What to Do

    March 28, 2018

    Just like with adults, children get stressed too. This might seem like a strange concept, as what do children have to be stressed about? They have no work or bills to pay, no responsibilities or pressures, but while this is true, we forget that it is hard growing up and learning what your place is in the world.
    From learning new skills and having new experiences to more specific pressures such as academic performance, separation anxiety or relationships, children often suffer in silence. This can have a significant negative impact on their health and development, so as parents, we need to

A Special Journey

As parents, we understand how important it is to choose the right day-care provider for your child. We know how hard the decision is to leave your child for the first time and, for some, how difficult the return to work can be.

Testimonials

  • "Alfie has attended the crèche since he was 10 months old, I can honestly say he has enjoyed every day. From the baby room, to the toddler room he is now in, he has clearly been well looked after. All staff we have dealt with are child focused, attentive and friendly and clearly work hard with the children, as Alfie has come home singing many new songs (always with a dance to go with it!!), nursery rhymes, numbers, letters, colours and much more. Parents evenings have been informative and give a good insight into what the children get up to every day. Foodwise, the crèche have been accommodating with food allergies, and the variety and quality of food the children experience is excellent. Alfie has experienced many different foods, and whilst he hasn’t liked them all, we consider it a great way for trying out new tastes and flavours. Alfie goes in smiling and comes home smiling, as parents we couldn’t ask for more." – Sally Abel (NPT)

Couldn't recommend enough."
