Information about the school

We are a very popular and Ofsted rated Outstanding Early Years setting based in the village of Rough Common, Canterbury. We offer term-time care to children aged 6 months – 4 years.

Our children are at the centre of everything we do, we value them all as unique individuals. We believe that children learn best when they are stimulated and able to follow their own interests, making choices for themselves about their learning journey.

We believe this is best achieved through play-based experiences, where the children are given the opportunity to explore their own interests, enquire, question, plan and take risks which in turn leads to high levels of wellbeing and involvement.

We welcome any potential candidates to arrange a visit to our setting prior to application.
