All children lovingly welcomed...

Our nurseries were founded in the belief that young children fair best in a ‘home from home’ environment where they feel loved, safe and emotionally secure. Children deserve to live in a richly stimulating environment and we strive to ensure that all children attending our nurseries and out of school clubs are provided with love, affection and intellectual stimulation at all times.

For the 27 years that Elm Cottage has been caring for children we have always believed that every member of our team should be trained in and kept up to date in paediatric first aid, this is something we have felt very strongly about and has been implemented since first opening in 1989.

We now work with Millie's Trust regularly and are proud to also provide support for our parents/carers with evening paediatric first aid workshops across our nursery settings.

We are now delighted to announce that our Orrishmere Nursery is one out of ten childcare providers across England that have become the first to achieve Millie’s Mark, the new quality mark for excellence in paediatric first aid for early years settings.
