Little Cubs Nursery

Established nearly 20 years ago, Little Cubs moved to Xcel in 2010 to expand to full daycare. With a reputation for high quality of care and excellent facilities, places are filling up fast. With our friendly, professional staff team, you can be confident that your child is being looked after the way you would look after them. Our rooms are age specific, with quality activities and furnishings.


From natural wood furniture to home cooked meals, every part of Little Cubs is aimed at delivering excellent care. This is most clear in our staffing; all our team hold current childcare qualifications and are constantly trained and developed in all areas. We highly value clear communication and are passionate about making sure that parents are kept fully informed about all aspects of their child's care.


The link between home and nursery is a key connection and we actively seek ways to continually ensure this is demonstrated in our nursery.

Jacksons Coffee House

Walk into Jacksons and you'll notice it's a little different to other coffee shops. Firstly, there's the warm and welcoming atmosphere. Then there's the range of luxury hot drinks. Next the stunning display of luxury cakes and selection of sandwiches and paninis. And finally, the most helpful and well trained baristas around. That's why we're the region's coffee shop of choice.

Whether you're meeting friends for coffee or looking for a relaxing place to work, Jacksons is the ideal location. Open from 8am to 5pm Monday to Thursday, 8am to 3pm on Friday, closed on Saturday, and open 12pm to 4:30pm on Sundays.
