Welcome to Merritime Nursery
Merrtime Nursery is somewhere where you can be assured that your child is welcomed
and encouraged to blossom throughout their time here.
You will find our Nursery welcoming and homely, we do everything we can to make
sure that all of the babies and children in our care are well looked after and feel
Based in Fort Rowner within H.M.S Sultan in Gosport, Hampshire we have a very historical
and natural environment around us, which the children are encouraged to enjoy.
We believe that children learn the best through play and having fun, this is reflected
in the curriculum that we offer.
Play allows the opportunity to interact with others and also helps to encourage
social skills, communication, confidence and so much more. It also forms a basis
for children to express their opinions, ideas, make decisions and develop independence.
