Welcome to Happy Days, Treliske

About our nursery

Rated 'Outstanding' by Ofsted, our nursery/pre-school is situated adjacent to Treliske Hospital. The nursery has held the same management team for sixteen years and boasts a very low staff turnover; staff therefore get to know your children well and provide a stimulating and safe environment where your youngster can thrive.

The setting has recently undergone a full refurbishment and provides free-flow access all day to the secure outdoor area.

We offer free grant-funded places for 2, 3 and 4 year olds, as well as free baby massage for any parent with a baby aged from 8 weeks to 12 months.
