  • The wellbeing of the babies and children in our care is at the heart of everything that we do.

    We believe that our partnership with parents is the key to this, and so we always give parents a warm welcome into the nursery. We love to share special celebrations such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and seasonal events with mums, dads and even grandparents!  

    Marigold’s educational philosophy is based on learning through play and discovery. We achieve this through a thoughtful blend of child and adult-led activities. We plan challenging adult-led activities for excellent progress and development, but still leave plenty of space for spontaneous child-led discovery and creativity.

    This allows the children to develop;

    • A positive sense of themselves
    • Confidence in their own abilities
    • Positive relationships and respect for others
    • Enhanced social skills
    • Ability to manage feelings
    • Excellent Carers
