Our Ethos

Rydal has been a well established and respected day nursery since 1996. We provide child care for children between ages 2 yrs & 5 yrs.

At Rydal we continuously strive to provide all the children with a fun, safe and dynamic learning environment. We aim to bring learning to life and provide the children with time to explore, ponder and embrace their new knowledge and skills. We encourage the children to pose questions and support them to seek the answers.

We are a fully inclusive nursery and welcome all children and their families.
