Other facilities information
We attend 2 different Music Mayhem sessions a week, a Childminder Support Group Stay & Play session, We have passes for Kent Life and Leeds Castle along with Wild Wood.

I like to get out and about with the children daily and have the relevent equipment to support this. We love messy play and generally getting a bit grubby.

Settling in sessions offered at no cost as they are just as important for me and you as they are to your child/children.
