Parent Testimonials

"The feed back sheet at the end of every day is great and is always well completed and informative. I feel and believe my son is very well cared for. I feel the staff care for the children genuinely and not just because it’s their job but because they have bonded with the children. I am totally happy with the Ark and so pleased I changed nursery’s. I would, and have, recommended it to friends. Well done and keep up the excellent work". Sue Sinkinson

NEG – National Education Grant
This scheme, run by the government, ensures that all 3 year olds can access free educational places for 2.5 hours each day. Your child may be eligible the term after their 3rd Birthday.
Parents can use this to contribute towards their fees if the child attends more than 2.5 hours per day.

We also offer funded only sessions but these are limited and subject to availability.
