Meet The Team

Elaine Willan


Hello my name is Elaine and I have been providing childcare in Tipton for 27 years. I downsized 10 years ago to this 13 place family orientated nursery which I run with Lisa , Keeleigh and Jessie who have been with me 26,8 and 6 years.

We work together like a family which reflects in our children as they settle well and always go on to achieve.


We love the situation of our nursery as we utilise all of the facilities such as; a state of the art dance studio, full size running track , Astro turf, tennis courts, outside play facilities and much more! Many facilities we didn’t have at other settings and we have really seen the difference in our children.

If you would like to come and look around please complete the form on here and we will arrange for you to visit us and our children!

If you do decide you would like a place we offer settling in free of charge for you and your child.


On your visit we will explain all of the early years goals that we follow and how the nursery works with your individual child.

Early Years Childcare Providers

Are fully qualified, very experienced and extremely dedicated to their roles – many have been with us since the owner opened her very first nursery in 1994.

We truly value continuity of care and know how important consistency is in a young child’s life – which is why our team is only made of of all permanent part-time and full-time educators.

This means that your child will always know and be familiar with every member of our team.
