How we care for children

Choosing the right nursery for your child is one of the most important and difficult decisions that you will have to make. Our secure facilites come with on site parking, ample outdoor space for children to explore and open plan indoor spaces. 


Children should feel happy and comfortable at the nursery, this will aid good social, emotional and physical well being. At Cotton Buddies children will receive a calm, caring and welcoming atmosphere so they can develop at their own pace.
