About Sweet Peas Day Care & Teaching Nurseries

Sweet Peas is a family owned nursery that was established in 2010 with the purpose of enabling families to go to work with peace of mind, knowing their children are receiving exceptional care, education and life experiences. Heléna, who owns the nursery, wanted somewhere that offers families the happy, safe and carefree environment that her own children experienced at home, thus Sweet Peas was born.

We are passionate about building a sincere relationship with parents and carers based on trust, honesty and openness. We have a respectful understanding of how important this partnership is in sharing one another’s knowledge of your child to meet their individual needs.
