Our Nursery

Our nursery is very friendly and has a wonderful homely feel. It consists of three main playrooms and a large outdoor play area, which really has to be seen to be believed.

Our indoor space has three distinct areas separated by age group, each with its own identity,
as follows:

The Caterpillar Room
For children aged from 6 months to 2 years with a staff to child ratio of 1:3


The Hungry Caterpillar Room

For children aged from 2 to 3 years with a staff to child ratio of 1:4


The Butterfly Room

For children aged 3 to 5 years with a staff to child ratio of 1:6


Our Opening Hours
We are open from 7.45am to 6.00pm, 5 days a week (Mon – Fri), 51 weeks a year.
We are closed for one week at Christmas, Bank/public holidays and one training day.

At Holly House we believe that care and education are equally important in the experience which we offer children. The routines and activities that make up the day in the setting are provided in ways that:

•    help each child to feel that she/he is a valued member of the setting;
•    ensure the safety of each child;
•    help children to gain from the social experience of being part of a group; and
•    provide children with opportunities to learn and help them to value learning.
