The purpose-built, single story setting can care for 95 children, from babies to pre-school. It is ideally located close to Rawtenstall town centre, with convenient links to the main motorways and surrounding towns.

We are committed to providing a healthy diet to all our children and our Smile 4 Life Award is a testament to that. The accolade is in recognition of our commitment to promoting and offering nutritious foods from weaning onwards, with a varied and diverse menu that caters for all cultural and dietary requirements. For more information see our Menus & Nutrition page.
Safety & Security
The safety and security of our children is a top priority, and our reception area is designed so that visitors can be carefully controlled. Families are greeted by our nursery manager when dropping off and collecting children, before doors are locked and monitored closely by our staff. We have a password system in place to give parents peace of mind that only authorised adults can collect their child. Parents and guardians can leave their child in our care, safe in the knowledge that they are in a secure environment.
Our Head Office is the home of our Quality Assurance & Training Teams that was set up to ensure our levels of care never fall, but rather, continue to improve. Our Admin Team handle lots of the paperwork not needed onsite and also answers childcare vouchers and tax-free childcare enquiries. Our Training Team provide us with homegrown staff and continual professional development opportunities for all staff. For more information see our Head Office page.
