A bit about us….

We value the child’s voice and thinking in everything we do. We follow the children’s interests through activities and projects that explore their questions and thinking about the world. Our rooms are calm, homely, and inviting and are tailored to the needs of Babies, Toddlers and Pre-school.
As an independent nursery, we are always keen to explore new ideas for what we offer for our children and families. We encourage our staff to share their talents and strengths, whether that is implementing new nursery activities based on your own talents / interests or organising nursery events for the children, for example. Your creative flair will always be welcomed and encouraged at Moon River!
We are a very friendly, welcoming family at Moon River; we believe that if we do all we can to create a happy, nurturing and inspiring environment for our staff to work in, this will be passed on to all our wonderful children.
