Banana Moon Hatton opened their doors in February 2013, a dream come true for Liz Scoular the Nursery Director. Liz had always wanted to open a nursery offering working parents a home-from-home for their children with a strong emphasis on providing quality opportunities for all children to learn and develop through play. Banana Moon Hatton is a rural nursery, based on the outskirts of Warwick in converted barns offering a paddock as the children’s playground – it really does offer the perfect start in life.
