What makes our childcare stand out?


Healthy nutritious meals, plenty of fresh air and exercise, learning their ABC's, making new friends ... all nurseries will look after your child but the key thing is how they do it. We do it by putting a smile on children's faces.

A happy child will learn more, be healthier and be more confident. Our approach puts your child's happiness right at the centre of everything we do. We believe that everything else flows from this and so we use the latest happiness research and techniques to delight your child and increase their wellbeing. A sense of humour will take you a long way in life.

It's not just our approach which makes our nursery stand out from the crowd but also our amazing staff team. They arrive at nursery each day excited, full of energy, ready to make each child’s day special and lots of fun. We recognise that play is an essential part of a child’s life and so we provide them with opportunities to have lots of fun as they explore, develop social skills, creativity and their own identity.

If you are looking for a nursery that actively promotes your child's personal happiness then Bluestone is the place for you.

"I enjoy working with children because no two days are the same, the children have such creative imaginations and tell amazing stories they keep my job interesting. Seeing the children develop into new milestones gives me great job satisfaction knowing that I contributed to their development. I am so grateful for all the smiles and cuddles the children give their happiness is so infectious which makes my job so enjoyable. I don't think I can imagine myself in any other job role without children now that I've experienced how fun working with them can be. "

"I enjoy working with children as it such a privilege to help watch them grow and develop into young independent girls and boys they are today and I am blessed to have been involved with so many children's lives already whilst they are at a nursery. Nothing seems to wake me up better than when I enter the room and the children are saying Katie or Kakie, but one thing I do feel strongly about is going above and beyond to help and support each and every child's development"
