Welcome to Little Darwins Nursery


At Little Darwins Nursery we aim to provide excellence in childcare facilities for children from 3 months old through to school transition. We achieve this by providing a safe and stimulating environment where children are set off on a journey of discovery that secures inquisitive learning, building friendships and developing a healthy self-esteem.

We plan an Early Years curriculum that is broad and balanced ensuring children are challenged and supported through every step of their learning experiences. By working closely with the school, the learning path is fully integrated with the over 5’s curriculum ensuring progression to school is seamless.  

We encourage emotional security for your child through a ‘key worker’ system ensuring your child always feels secure during personal times such as feeding, sleeping and changing.   It also ensures your child will have the emotional support they need to develop and grow in their learning.

We understand that selecting a nursery for your child will be one of the most emotional decisions you have to make as parents.  We know you will want peace of mind and assurance that your child is happy, socialising, learning and discovering during their time at nursery.  By working closely with you to personalise your child’s journey with us you can be assured your child will thrive and develop to their full potential here at Little Darwins.
