Thornleigh is a semi-detached house built in the 1900’s. Converted from a six-bedroom guest house to a children’s day nursery in 1991.

We are in a central but quiet location and are situated
5 minutes walk from all the local schools. Not only do we offer full day care but we also provide a great breakfast club and after school club too, taking and collecting children from school, proving helpful for working parents.

We have been in business with great success for over 9 years and all our staff are carefully chosen and each have relevant qualifications, experience and a genuine love for children.

With this we encourage the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of your child by teaching through play in a resourceful environment guided by the EYFS.

Our nursery is seperated in to 3 areas determined by the ages and stages of the children:
