Business overview


Welcome to Little Bears Day Nursery & Pre School.

We are Ofsted registered to care for and educate children from 3 months up to 5 years. We are open 51 weeks of a year.

Our primary goal is to be the first choice for families requiring professional childcare and early years education, providing the highest quality that is both accessible and affordable. Little Bears differentiates itself by a passionate attention to detail in everything that we do.

Children here are safe, loved and stimulated in an efficient, well managed and maintained manner; this creates an atmosphere of happiness and security. We promote a healthy understanding and respect for natural values in all aspects of the nursery.

We do not feel a child begins to learn only when they turn a particular age, therefore we begin a gradual introduction to the more structured learning process as soon as we feel each child is mature enough to do so.

Our Nursery and Pre-School together with its Forest School are run from a charming farmhouse in a quiet backwater location.

A small nursery and Pre-school with a BIG welcome, where every child matters.

Very happy, highly recommended

Our boy has been attending Little Bears since he was 14 months and has now been there for just over a year. We had originally arranged care at a different nursery but it quickly became evident he was not settling from the taster days. We visited Little Bears after recommendation and immediately felt more comfortable - due to the warmth, enthusiasm and kindness of the staff along with a nice homely feel of the nursery overall.

Most importantly, he thoroughly enjoyed himself and had no trouble at all settling in with his taster days at Little Bears. What a difference!

Since then he has progressed up to the toddler room and we are very happy with the way he is developing. There is plenty of variety in the activities and our boy's confidence is definitely improving as part of his experiences at Little Bears.

We both feel very happy and relaxed in the knowledge that our boy is in safe hands at Little bears and it is very clear that our boy is very happy there too.

A lovely small nursery with great staff. Strongly recommend!

My child really enjoyed the almost 4 years spent at little bears. The staff are easy to talk to and put us and our child at ease from day one, keeping us informed of what our child had done and eaten (lots of healthy food!) each day. They have a lovely garden (recently re-done) where the children can play and do gardening as well as lots of indoor activities (including messy play!) and games for the children. They also have walks that the parents can go along to as well as French lessons and music/dancing and the occasional petting zoo which our child loved! They use tapestry to upload photos and give in depth information about your child’s development using the early years foundation stage curriculum. The staff really bond with the children and look after them really well. We have only fond memories of the time our child spent there (as does our child who always came home happy) and we will all miss the staff!

Little bears nursery

I’m so happy I chose little bears nursery for my children, we looked at a few and as soon as we viewed this one we knew it was the best for our children, the staff was lovely and welcoming, there safe guarding the children is brilliant. I know my children will be forever safe when leaving them there.

By far the best nursery.

Home away from home!

We found Little Bears Day Nursery by recommendation after moving to the area with our first child. We were completely impressed with the viewing as each staff member took an active interest in our daughter and interacted with her from that first time. The staff were so helpful with easing my first time parent nerves and our daughter settled beautifully.

The nursery is a home away from home, and our daughter has grown substantially in confidence and ability. It is a really friendly setting and they always take the time to tell us about their day.

Our daughter calls it "nursery home" and we have only ever felt comfortable with her being there. The staff go out of their way to make sure the children are supported - one of the great things is that all of the children eat breakfast and tea together. This has meant there has not been any disruption when the children move to the next room as they already know the staff and children.

I would absolutely recommend to other parents!

Little Bears is outstanding!!

We are so pleased we chose Little Bears for our son. His previous nursery let him escape and did not know he was missing when he was returned, luckily, safely. I was so nervous to send him anywhere, but after meeting Sarah I felt instantly comfortable. My son has had the best time at Little Bears, my whole family have formed close relationships with all of the amazing staff there. The support we have felt from the beginning and through a lot of sad times this year with the loss of family and friends, we literally cannot thank Little Bears enough. Our son has learned so much, been able to express himself through the brilliant activities and games provided to him. We will miss you all so much, thank you!!!
