Who Are We?


Hello, we are Maria and Nick Hale, registered with Ofsted and based in the Warley area of Brentwood, Essex.

We have been married for twenty-five years and have 6 children of our own - 5 boys and 1 girl. 

Our children are now either working or at senior school. 

We love working with children and aim to provide a comforting and nurturing environment, offering plenty of attention with enriching and stimulating activities. 

We live near the woods, parks and fields and take the children out as much as we can to explore.

We endeavour to form a secure bond with every child and work in partnership with parents/carers. 

We have dogs that love children - they are strictly supervised at all times with the children. We also have cats and guinea pigs! 

We have a safe and secure garden to play in and lots of stimulating resources both inside and out.

We provide full time day care for preschool age children as well as offering the before and after school childminding service for children who attend St Helen's Infants and Junior schools in Sawyers Hall Lane, Brentwood. 

We are open from 7.30am and finish at 6pm. 

We live in walking distance of Brentwood station.

We provide breakfast, snacks and evening meals.

Maria has previously managed a local preschool where she was also the safeguarding officer. She also has experience working with children who have additional needs and IEPs.

We have a sound understanding of delivering the EYFS, offering mark-making, messy play, cooking activities, arts and crafts mixed with plenty of fresh air and exploration. 

Always aiming to feed a child's enthusiasm to make sense of their world and gain social skills as well as academic ones… We take every opportunity to enhance their outcomes.
