“Children are settled and have fun at this warm and welcoming nursery. They form
close bonds with staff and demonstrate that they feel safe and secure in their care.”

We hope every child (and therefore every parent) enjoys their time with us. We are confident that the excellent care and learning opportunities available with us will mean your child is happy when they come to nursery or pre-school.
The setting was purpose built about 10 years ago and has lots of space indoors and outdoors for the children. The facilities were designed especially for us to create carefully planned care and learning opportunities that help to nurture learning, exploration and critical thinking for each child.
As well as a wonderful setting, we have a staff team of caring, kind and experienced practitioners who are all passionate about working with children and who find their jobs really rewarding. We have a very low turnover rate at Hope and this brings a confidence and knowledge to practice as well as a strong sense of belonging and partnership in the team. All of this helps form the foundation of exceptional early education and outcomes for every child.
All activities and learning opportunities are planned to meet the Early Years Foundation Stage framework. We are open 50 weeks of the year from 8am to 5.30pm Monday – Friday.
Our vision for children at HOPE
- To develop lively, enquiring minds, together with a willingness to ask questions and argue rationally
- To think and act creatively with imagination
- To grow in confidence and independence and to know the value of co-operation
- To understand the feelings of others, to respect their values and to consider thoughtfully their own attitudes, values and beliefs
- To achieve their true potential and to take pride in their achievement, while taking pleasure in the achievement of others
