Parents Testimonials

A fantastic nursery with great staff and a wonderful approach to learning and preparing their children for school and beyond.

Simon L

My twin boys attended Little Learners from birth. I can’t stress enough what a brilliant experience it was for them and an excellent grounding for starting school last summer. A professional and caring staff team who genuinely care and love their jobs. I can’t thank them enough for everything they did.

LD

Brilliant nursery, my daughter loves it. She has been here since she was 1 (now 4) staff are friendly and keen to bring out the best in every child.

I was so nervous about returning to work and leaving my 10 month old at nursery, but the team at Little learners were excellent they put me and my husband at ease. The settle days were a great way for us to get used to being apart and helped greatly. The team are friendly and caring and although it never gets easier my little one is thriving and loves his nursery days. Clean Friendly highly recommend.

I was very apprehensive about sending our daughter to nursery but sending her to Little Learners was 100% the right decision. This is a really happy nursery. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and full of toys and activities; and outside there’s a massive play area and some chickens. The staff are great - very friendly and incredibly professional. They look after toddlers all day and make it look really easy and fun. They made our daughter's transition to nursery hassle-free. She has been cared for by the same few people the whole time she has been there – all of the staff know her/us and we know them. Now she gets more excited to see them than she does to see us.

All 3 of my children have had the privilege of attending little learners. My youngest two kids are still in babies and preschool. I can't recommend the nursery enough, the staff are genuinely lovely and very caring, the children receive the best of care and are always learning and having fun at the same time. I have never been worried or anxious leaving my children in such capable hands and I am a very panicky and paranoid mum!! I can't fault a thing! Lyndsay, the nursery manager has great experience and is very approachable and understanding, no matter what the situation, nothing is ever a bother to her. All the amazing staff make such a great team and are an asset to the nursery and children.
My oldest daughter started little learners when she was 2 and she is now in primary school, her teacher stated at parents night that those who attended little learners nursery really stood out significantly, as they were miles ahead academically. Really can't recommend enough!!

After putting my daughter into a nearby nursery beforehand and not taking her back after the 1st day, I moved here to Little Leaners aged 1. I was really worried about trying somewhere else, however after chatting to Lyndsay about my worries, she reassured me Chloe would be fine. 3 years later I couldn't have asked for a better nursery, the staff are nice and friendly always chatty and keen to bring out the best in your child. I wouldn't go anywhere else if I had more kids in the future.

A great nursery that I have been using since summer 2014. The children get outdoors whenever the weather allows, both out in the lovely garden area and into the surrounding area for walks, picnics and trips to the park! The children have also had many trips out on the bus which they have loved. The staff have dealt well with my children with food allergies and menus are available in advance. We always get good feedback at pick-up time and there are frequent parent’s nights too. The fact that Little Learners accept Childcare vouchers and have government funded pre-school places is an added bonus and I would recommend Little Learners to anyone looking for a nursery in this area. It’s also worth mentioning that there is a car park for parents which is a god send when trying to load multiple children into the car after a busy day :)

Mr & Mrs Campbell

Lovely nursery, my daughter (almost 2) has been going since she was 8 months old. The staff are caring, friendly and really do everything they can to entertain and encourage development. Feedback at the end of the day is good and there are regular email/newsletter updates and online photo journals. I particularly like that the children go outside often, the garden is great. My daughter is a big fan of the pet chickens. I have and would continue to recommend to other parents and carers in the area.
