Our Story

In 2004, we opened our doors, moving from our previous premises (Tregenna Castle and subsequently Connaught). We have been in the community of St Ives for just over 30 years; we are highly fortunate to have managers that have worked in this industry for well over 40!

 

Jan (one of the nursery owners) set up shop in St Ives back in 1993 with Louise (a native to St Ives!) and our Cornish teacher Sue. The nursery owners, coming from a land-locked county (Birmingham), found that the opportunities that are available locally are second to none; we have (we feel) the best beaches in the world and wonderful woodlands on our doorstep which is why we have chosen to weave an outdoor focus within our curriculum. Joe joined our nursery back in 2011 and ultimately achieved Early Years Teacher Status in 2019; a highly prestigious award. He works closely with all staff to improve outcomes for all children.

 

In 2018, St Erth Nursery (previously St Erth Childcare Centre) joined our family of nurseries with whom we share a wealth of knowledge, resources and expertise.
