We would like them to have developed key learning skills, such as good concentration, communication skills and the ability to develop positive relationships as they move forward in their learning journey.
We give them strategies for good mental health and the ability to express themselves appropriately. We would like every child to celebrate themselves for the amazing unique individual they are and feel valued and heard.
WHAT PARENTS SAY ABOUT US...
Even now, a year after my son left he still asks to go back to Snuggles. They looked after my son like he was their own and we both miss them truly. I thank all of the staff they are the best!

All of my three sons went to this nursery and I couldn't be more happy or grateful. The staff are so kind and caring of parents as well as the children. I am really appreciative of all their patience, encouragement, compassion, teaching and support. I couldn't have picked a better pre-school to contribute and support my children's growth, especially through the pandemic.
