Where to go

Robin Hood Lane

I live within easy (2 minutes) access to M2 motorway, also close to Maidstone bus route.

Within walking distance to local play areas and Tunbury school and Preschool. Walking distance to Bluebell Hill  & Smilers preschools.

Home from home, but with the twist of a Learning Environment. 

A welcoming place, starting with a friendly smile.

The sharing room in our house is to welcome you inside, looking out onto the great size lawned area.

Beyond that is the fenced off area, where the family pets spend the day.

This can be included in our day, under strict supervision.

Our house has 3 reception areas, 2 being for family only. Kitchen area for messy play activities and on the same level toilet facilities.
