About the employer

Treetops Day Nursery is housed in a beautiful Victorian property set within picturesque gardens providing ample play space, including all weather grass and soft play areas outside. In addition to this we also offer a large indoor play facility.

The stimulating environment is not just provided internally; our outdoor areas present age-appropriate equipment such as trampolines, climbing frames and slides to develop gross motor skills while the children run around happily, rain or shine, on our all-weather surfaces.

Each child placed within a Cornerstone nursery is assigned a keyworker to ensure a personal service is delivered to both child and parent. Care sheets, detailing the child’s day, are sent home on a daily basis and observations and development records are freely shared.

We are aware that diet is a concern for many parents and so we provide a menu that boasts an extremely high fresh fruit and vegetable content.
