Milestones Day Nursery has been opened since 2004 and we cater for children from 3 months to 4 years old.

Our aim is to build good relationships with our families, sharing information with our parents about their child's learning and development and offering support and advice. Our staff work together to ensure the children's needs are met by building good positive bonds with the child, we have a key person system; which ensures the child always has someone to go to when needed, (the key person works in partnership with a buddy).

The staff working at Milestones pride themselves on being open, honest and friendly, we ensure the children come first in everything we do, parents are able to speak to their child's key person or their buddy at the start/end of their session and the manager has an open door policy being available for parents, staff and children throughout the day.
