Who we are

Purple Willows is OFSTED accredited private preschool that provides a premier early education and childcare experience for children and families. 

At Purple Willows our ethos is “Community Pride and Respect” and we want all our children to take pride in themselves, their families, their background and their heritage.

We believe that all children can succeed and we know that children can achieve this success when they are happy, feel cared for, valued and appreciate their work. This is why at Purple Willows, we are committed to ensuring that every child has the opportunity to fulfil their potential and we take pride in inspiring them to achieve their very best within a happy community where respect and tolerance for self and others are embedded.

Our unique nurturing approach will give your child the opportunity to develop into a joyful, confident learner who is prepared for success in school and life. We carefully select our nursery staff based solely upon their suitability for the post and qualifications. It is essential that they understand the needs of your child and utilize our unique curriculum, incorporating 21st-century learning skills to teach your child to explore, discover, imagine and learn in a fun-loving environment.

We invite parents and guardians to visit our nursery to learn more about our program and to tour our nursery setting.

Our Commitment to You

At Purple Willows we firmly believe that a secure, safe and happy childhood is important and every child deserves the very best possible start in life and the support that enables them to fulfill their potential. In fact, children in their early years develop so quickly, and their experience in childhood before starting primary school have a significant impact on their development and prospects.  It is therefore essential parents consider to make the right choice for their loved ones during their early years to achieve the best possible start in life.

Purple Willows overreaching philosophy is to provide your child the foundation they need to make the most of their abilities and talents in their childhood by giving them a wide range of knowledge and skills in our enabling environment so they can learn to be healthy and independent through positive relationships.

As an OFSTED accredited private nursery, we follow the standards of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which seeks to provide quality and consistency for all children to make good progress and no one left behind while ensuring their learning and development are planned around their needs and interest.


Our services are flexible and respond to your child's priorities and needs. All our children progress are measured and assessed, and we work together with parents to keep them up to date on their child’s development. We believe that children develop and learn in different ways, so we ensure that your child's planned activities are structured according to their learning pace.  

Why entrust us your child

At Purple Willows, we believe that each child is unique, with their individual preferences and needs. So, we keep you in control and provide your child with a stimulating, safe, aesthetically pleasing environment in which they will explore, grow and discover.
