We are open and enrolling across our three nursery & preschools in Guildford and Shamley Green.
Enrolment looks a little different with our current Covid response limitations. Please call the nursery direct to learn about our safety practices and enrolment.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is designed to be a joint partnership with parents and professionals. We welcome parents to take part in the curriculum and the journey in learning about the EYFS and the supporting frameworks and legislation around what we do.
