About Us


Little Darwins is a full day care nursery set in extensive grounds and surrounded by Essex countryside. The nursery is situated next to Rettendon School which is located between Chelmsford, Woodham and Wickford on the old A130.


We are open from 7am to 7pm 51 weeks per year and offers a range of care packages including:


  • Full day care for babies from 3 months through to school transition
  • Short day care (9am - 3pm) for children from 2 years through to school transition
  • Term time only packages (without retainer)
  • Wrap around (school day) care (5-11 years)
  • Holiday club (5 - 11 years)


The children are cared for by early years practitioners who are trained to recognise the development needs of your child and create a safe, challenging and stimulating environment.
