"Education for Life"

Childhood is the most important time of our lives. The experiences, feelings and education of our early years will greatly colour and shape the adults we go on to become and the part we play in the world.

Our primary task is to provide an environment and education that will allow our pupils to become creative, responsible and confident adults who are more than equipped to face the many challenges of life.

An Assisted Fee Scheme is also available.

Rowans Day Nursery accepts Early Years Vouchers and has openings now.
