About Us

Following two and a half years of extensive research and renovation, Active Tots was born into the current premises within a converted barn in a beautiful rural location on 6th April 2006.

Our facilities have been designed with ‘the little ones’ very much in mind with an open plan design so that parents and carers can see the little ones from wherever they are and like wise the little ones can see you too!  Therefore providing a wonderful place to play and build confidence, whilst parents and carers get a chance to socialise and relax too! We look forward to welcoming you to our warm, friendly and relaxed haven very soon!
