A quote from our manager & owner
"A reciprocal partnership with parents creates a meaningful connection between home and the nursery. Parents hold clues to the family's culture, background and dynamics. They have goals and expectations for their child and can talk about the child's interests at home."
"Our experienced staff work with the children as facilitator, co-learner, active observer and collaborator. An enhanced environment will motivate your children to become architects of their own learning."
- Bernadette Chevli, Owner
High quality childcare
The Butterfly Day Nursery provides high quality childcare for the local community and visitors to the City.
Here at the Butterfly we see ourselves as a team. This includes the staff, the children and the parents. We recognise the key role of parents as the first educators and their commitment to their child’s early years education.
We promote a relationship of mutual respect and kindness.
“Children are happy to attend this friendly nursery. They show that they feel safe and secure”

Resilience & Independence
Our ethos and environment fosters resilience and independence, helping the children to make positive choices about themselves and have a positive self image, whilst promoting equality and diversity throughout.
We provide the children with a bright and stimulating environment which allows the children to become deeply engaged in their play, learning how to be independent and engage with others in a positive way.
“Children of all ages increase their confidence as they play and explore”
