Little Elms is an established nursery that aims to provide the highest standards of care for children aged between 3 months and 5 years.

A family-run business, we believe that a fun and a caring environment is crucial to happy and healthy development.

Our nurseries offer state-of-the-art facilities, combining bright and spacious rooms indoors with fabulous outdoor areas. Our experienced and motivated team provides a stimulating yet safe environment for creative play. Little Elms takes pride in being a friendly setting in which each child’s physical, emotional and developmental needs are met. Every child is special and is encouraged to achieve his or her full potential in the precious pre-school years.

Please come along to see for yourself our brilliant childcare facilities and meet our friendly team. Feel free to make an appointment to view the nursery at a time convenient to you by calling 0208 658 4282.

Our staff are dedicated to providing opportunities for creative play that will .. nurture your child’s physical, social and emotional development.

Children develop through exploring the world around them and that’s why the emphasis at Little Elms is on fun learning through play. The nursery’s layout, staffing and activity planning are structured around the different needs of babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers.

Each child is assigned a key worker who is responsible for the emotional wellbeing and development of a small group of children. This system allows the key worker to understand your child’s individual needs, build a special relationship with them and give them a sense of security. Your key worker will provide daily feedback – such as activities, nappy changes and food eaten – as well as regular updates on your child’s progress.

The experienced childcare staff at Little Elms are all qualified to NVQ level 3 or above. They participate in a rigorous induction programme and have regular appraisals. Career development is provided on-site in our dedicated training room, with two floating staff members allowing training to take place without compromising either safety or fun for your child.

Little Elms will also be offering extra opportunities – at no additional cost – to promote your child’s development, including dance, tennis and an introduction to French or Spanish.
