The centre is based at Mount Esk Nursery, where there is a small garden, a large spacious playroom, and a private parents room for support sessions and “tea time” sessions.
A range of groups are available. Parents can get together with other parents to discuss their children and any problems, which may be making life difficult. Whilst this is happening, experienced qualified staff care for the children, with a variety of different themed activities which all link into the curriculum and help to prepare the older children for nursery. Whilst at the same time assisting with parenting issues such as potty training or fussy eating.
