Planning to open in Feb 2021, we want to provide the best learning environment for pre-school children and the best experience for parents.

Who we are

We are two experienced early years practitioners, who have a passionate belief in providing childcare that sparks the curiosity of each individual child in our care and builds on their existing skills and knowledge. 

Together we have experience in educational settings as a teacher, teaching assistant, childminder and nursery practitioner and feel our combined skills and devotion to early years childhood development will help create a homely and inspiring learning environment, where we will nurture the individual child’s interests and create firm foundations for their future skills and development.


"I loved it when Caroline looked after me, we played in the garden, made pancakes and went on lots of adventures".  Bella K

"Caroline provided our daughters with a safe and loving environment. Her communication was great and we always knew what the girls had been up to during the day. The girls felt they were part of the her family and loved the variety of child led play that Caroline facilitated for them." Becca K - Teacher and Bella's mum

"Caroline is a true professional with a deep passion for the early years. She shows compassion for children of all ages and offers a nurturing approach to her care of children. Caroline offers a deeply creative approach to activities and really cultivates childrens natural curiosity and interest. When working 1:1, Caroline took the time to establish powerful relationships with pupils which enabled her to engage and motivate pupils of all ages and need.

A deeply kind and imaginative practitioner who demonstrates professionalism and commitment to all she does". Clare T - Teacher

What we are doing

We plan to open in February 2021 in a brand new, purpose-built classroom, fully OFSTED registered providing childcare for children between the ages of 1 and 5 years.  We will work within the EYFS and Development Matters frameworks and to The Curiosity Approach and Forest School ethoses using natural resources where possible (see perks!).

What we want to do

As well as providing the best possible environment for the children, we know how important the childcare experience is for parents, (after all, we have 7 children between us!).  So, with this in mind, we want to develop an application where we can share photos and videos of activities and development milestones, in near real-time, so that parents are able to follow the learning journey of their child(ren).

This crowdfunder campaign is to raise sufficient funds to develop the application and ensure it is secure and complies with DPA, GDPA and ICO regulations.
