Our experienced educators carefully plan activities and provide an environment that encourages children to be interested, excited, and motivated to learn.

We also offer Forest School sessions which present children with opportunities to initiate activities themselves, developing communication and language skills, and forming relationships with their peers. We strive to make children feel valued as individuals in all that we do.

Mealtimes at Ark Kesteven Road are a time for children to refuel, be sociable, and learn about nutrition.

We are dedicated to providing nutritious, balanced, and varied meals that are freshly prepared by our on-site cook using local produce.

During mealtimes, we support children to develop good table manners and learn about the taste, smell, and texture of different foods. This promotes confidence in embracing adventurous food choices as they grow.

As their story begins to take shape, growing toddlers are given the time and space to be more independent, discover, and learn. Children enjoy interesting and cosy environments that encourage them to explore and investigate with independence. Our various spaces for this age group are complete with a treehouse and under-stairs sensory cave, their own bathroom facilities and direct entry onto the large decking and outdoor area.

With growing confidence and ability, the Storal Curriculum prepares our preschool children for primary school with a focus on literacy, early maths, and social skills. We achieve this through versatile spaces split into different areas to focus on all areas of learning, including our balcony for free flow play where children can observe the world from a different angle. Outdoor learning is also prioritised in our outdoor play zone complete with a fire circle, tree swing, and mud kitchen. Our Forest School sessions are also a firm favourite.

Out Of School Clubs

We know that balancing all your commitments can be a challenge. Our Breakfast (from 7:30 am) and After School Club (until 6:00 pm) are here to make the daily juggle easier.

Amidst all that learning, there’s plenty of time for play with games, creative activities and outdoor fun.


If children prefer some time away from the hustle and bustle, our quiet area is equipped with reading books and spaces to complete homework.


Whether it’s breakfast to start the day or a hearty meal after school, all of our nutritious food is freshly prepared daily.
