OYEZ! New nursery opens its doors
25 May 2021


Shrewsbury Town Crier Martin Wood will open a new day nursery from award-winning group Kids Planet in Harlescott on Saturday 19th June.

Kids Planet nursery is now taking bookings for tours for the open day (see details below) between 10am and 2pm. 

Located in the former Chiquito's restaurant on Battlefield Road, the building has enjoyed a complete refit, to include a carefully thought out nature-inspired outdoor play area.

The single-storey nursery will open from 7am to 7pm Monday to Friday and includes a sensory room, large wrap-around outdoor play areas including natural resources, complete with water play, steppingstones, sand area, dens, tunnel, and a mud kitchen.  Carefully thought-out age-specific rooms for 0–5-year-olds, offer children a place full of sensory richness and provide opportunities for children to explore, learn and discover.
