Welcome to Little Darwins Nursery


Our Vision

At Little Darwin’s we celebrate each child’s individuality and uniqueness by providing opportunities to be noise conductors, messy creators and active movers. We offer an accessible indoor and outdoor environment harnessed by a curriculum which intrigues and fascinates learners. Skilful educators enable memorable and purposeful experiences for all children to set them off on the right course together.


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.

Diwali 2018

Posted: Nov 9, 2018 by: admin on: Nursery Blog

We have had an amazing week celebrating Diwali. Children have been commemorating the Hindu festival of lights by making Diva lamps, painting Rangoli patterns, dancing to music with bright textured materials, finger lights and bells. We had a special visitor come to Little Darwins this week, Ash shared Mehndi (henna) with the children. Children were excited to show their designs to staff, peers and their families. Thank you to all the children and families for sharing this topic with us.
