Thank you for voting us Nextdoor Neighbourhood Fave!

We are so very proud to be a part of this wonderful community!

Welcome to our nursery

Situated in the heart of the community in St Leonards - we believe in creating a nurturing, family environment centered on child led learning with a strong focus on children's social and emotional well-being. 

Our curriculum is centered around nurturing those most important very first building blocks, by helping children find the confidence in their own abilities.  

As a nursery we are actively involved within the community, singing our songs for the older adults, litter picking, Christmas plays in the village hall, learning about the people in our community.

We are very lucky to have a secure garden, the nearby play park - perfect distance for smaller legs! and adventures on the village green!

Here at The Little Learners Nursery we are proud to have acheived a Good Provider rating from Ofsted.

"Since returning to the setting following their temporary closure due to COVID-19, staff have placed a high importance on supporting children's social skills and emotional well-being. The results can be seen as children settle quickly and demonstrate a can-do approach to new experiences and challenges. Children show consideration and respect towards each other and develop good relationships. "

The Little Learners Nursery is a member of PACEY (professional association for childcare and Early Years) All of our staff hold qualifications and many years experience.

Our aims 

Our aim as a nursery is to make sure every child is made welcome, valued and kept safe. While we believe it is very important for the children to enjoy their learning, our main focus is on the importance of the children's social and emotional wellbeing and in the building of their confidence. As we feel that these qualities are the foundations that a child needs to help to progress to a successful and happy future!
