Friends @ Saintfield is situated in a quiet, rural setting approximately 1.25 miles out of Saintfield town. The purpose built 'day care facility' is situated in quiet, rural farmland that is easily accessible from all routes.

The custom designed building has been well thought out creating a fresh approach to childcare. Simple materials and natural light have been used in an innovative manner to provide a delightful series of internal spaces.

The spacious building incorporates four self contained areas: a baby caring unit for babies and 'wobblers' from 6 weeks-2 years, a 'toddler' unit caring for children from 2-3 years, a preschool unit caring for 3-4 year olds and an after-school club for 4-11 year old children. All rooms have their own play, art, dining and sleep areas.

There is a hive of daily activity, including table top play, baking, gardening, art activities, water play, dressing up and construction to encourage imaginative development. All rooms have easy access to exciting outside play-areas.

Also outside - a homely 'open farm' is enjoyed by young and old! The ever-changing menagerie of animals include: Polly the donkey, CoCo and Milkshake the goats, Bill and Ben the rabbits, ducks and hens. Animal neighbours include grazing cattle, sheep and horses.

Each room has been carefully designed and tastefully decorated to create a stimulating environment and a setting that motivates the mind in which children really thrive.
