Choosing a pre-school

Choosing a pre-school nursery for your child can be a daunting task, especially if it's your first time. With so many options available, it's important to take your time and do your research to find the right fit for your child. 

Here are some tips to help you make the best decision for your family...


The Fir Cones Day Nursery recently celebrated the opening of a new classroom to accommodate their growing numbers. Since the redesign and expansion in September 2022 to accommodate children from 0-4 years, the all year-round nursery has flourished and gone from strength to strength. 

The addition of the new classroom, tailored for their Prep children aged 3-4 years, provides two dedicated prep classes nestled within their own block. With access to a wonderful outdoor area, dubbed the 'Secret Garden,' it has its own special pirate play ship and children are immersed in an environment designed to ignite their imagination and foster exploration.

Kathy Hague, Manager of Fir Cones, comments, "We are delighted with the lovely new classroom which is bright and fresh and provides a perfect environment to learn in. It's a testament to our commitment to providing exceptional early childhood education and creating enriching experiences for our children. 

"Our mission is to provide a nurturing and stimulating environment where our children can thrive before going into reception and up through our wonderful school where they can reach their full potential.”
