Our Setting

We live in a smoke-free detached house in a quiet cul-de-sac in the lovely village of Bishops Lydeard, near Taunton in Somerset.

We have a large living room, downstairs toilet, kitchen, conservatory and a play room in which all the children have access. 

Our lovely setting offers a real "home from home" environment where babies and children can feel safe and secure. We have a great selection of toys, including a lot of educational and development toys, a good selection of books for reading time, an area for doing crafts and creative play and a designated playroom with a host of other toys, games and fancy dress costumes.

Our large garden has plenty of room for the children to let off a bit of steam, to run around and enjoy themselves. We have an undercover play area in the garden which includes a slide and house, a pirates ship, chalk board, mud kitchen, sand and a picnic area. 

We have a gorgeous Golden Retriever dog called Maya, who loves nothing better than to be cuddled, patted and played with by anyone and she will put up with any amount of fuss!

Activities

We have a very wide range of activities and trips out. Where possible, and weather permitting, we will be out of the house. Children love to be outside, running around and having fun, and it is also a very important part of a child`s development where they can gain confidence in their environment and develop awareness in their surroundings.
