A warm welcome from Justine & Johnny

Over the past 30 years we have been providing outstanding and high-class childcare to the local community so we are safe in the knowledge that Little Owls can offer the very best for your child and your family.

At our little Owl’s nurseries, we are proud to employ a long standing and extremely dedicated team of professional and qualified nursery practitioners to provide the best care and education for your children.

We also offer an environment that nurtures and stimulates your child whilst also offering that extremely very important home from home feel too. We try to ensure that our parents are included and involved in the nursery as much as possible inviting you to regular story cafes, drop in sessions, yoga cafes, open evenings, sports days and finally our nursery graduation ceremony. We also invest in offering our families “Tapestry” your child’s own unique online learning journal which ensures that you are visually included in aspects of your child’s day at nursery.

Our main ethos at Little Owls is to create a high quality, Outstanding professional service for our parents and children whilst always placing your child at the centre of everything that we do.
