Our Mission

Grove Villa Childcare aims to provide children with a safe, caring and stimulating environment, enabling them to achieve their full potential. We place a strong emphasis on learning and development through play, acknowledging individual skills and abilities. We work alongside the community to promote values that instil respect, diversity and inclusion.

Why Choose Us

Home from Home

Grove Villa is designed to feel like a home from home whilst still offering an education so that your children are ready for their next adventure. We offer a happy environment to nurture all the children. You will not only find us providing the highest standards in safety and security, but we believe in empowering your children to be the best they can be. 


Out and About

We give priority to daily outings within the local community, such as local parks and walks, as well as further afield.  Daily outings such as these support the development of healthy and active lifestyles by offering children opportunities for physical activity, freedom and movement, and promoting a sense of well-being. Out and about will also give children contact with the natural world and will offer them experiences that are unique to outdoors, such as direct contact with the weather and the seasons. 

Home Visit

 Grove Villa offers parents/carers the opportunity to have a home visit. This will be an opportunity for the child’s key person and a senior member of the team to visit the child in their own environment where they feel most confident and secure. It is important that their key worker develops a rapport with both the child and parent/carer to ensure effective two-way communication.


Our beautiful allotment site will be transformed to provide opportunities for children and families to engage in creative outdoor learning and play. Our allotment will offer families access to sustainable, locally grown, healthy food as well as the knowledge and skills to grow and cook own food.

Philosophy and Ethos

We understand how hard it is to leave your child in the hands of others, and how much trust is required to do so. At Grove Villa we are extremely passionate about providing only the highest possible standard of childcare in every possible way. This is reflected in every aspect of our service, from the quality of our staff, our very high staff to child ratio, our educational curriculum and Early Learning Journeys, our investment in our facilities, our commitment to serving only the highest quality produce, through to our well-planned, very popular activities, outings and parties!

We are dedicated to our quality to the extent that we have chosen to remain small enough to guarantee only the absolute finest care. For us it’s the personal relationships that we generate with the children and the parents, and the knowledge that we are doing everything that we can to give the children the best start in life, that are our greatest rewards.  



Inspiring, imagination and enviroment

Creativity can transform understanding by fostering critical thinking, allowing children to review, reinvent and make new meanings for themselves.  Our goal is to surround children with creative opportunities; nurturing their imagination and giving them the space to discover their own creativity.


Enabling, love, fun, joy and freedom

Children need to discover the world for themselves, we just need to bring the world to them.


Inspiring children’s love of the outdoors

“When children come into contact with nature, they reveal their strength” Maria Montessori.


Allowing children to be free in a safe environment

“Let the children be free; encourage them; let them run outside when it is raining; let them remove their shoes when they find a puddle of water; and, when the grass of the meadows is damp with dew, let them run on it and trample it with their bare feet; let them rest peacefully when a tree invites them to sleep beneath its shade; let them shout and laugh when the sun wakes them in the morning…” Maria Montessor
