Who We Are


We are a small family run business dedicated and passionate to provide high quality early years experiences for young children in and around Waldron. We welcome all children and families at Young Haymakers and we hope you enjoy browsing our website. It provides us with the opportunity to explain and demonstrate our principles and philosophy.

Our aim is to provide a safe, secure, welcoming and friendly environment, where children will be inspired to be confident, active learners to enable them to reach their full potential, in all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage.

We are situated in the heart of stunning countryside near Waldron.  We have safe access to surrounding fields and nearby woodland.

Please also read our 'Mission Statement' in the Information for Parents section.
