Little Adventurers Nursery

Little Adventurers Nursery is a brand new day nursery in Cranham now open to all children under 5 years. Please call us on 01708 227657 for more details, to come and meet our friendly team of caring practitioners and view our facilities.

"Having worked in early childhood education for almost 30 years I have come to believe that what young children need more than anything is to be cherished and allowed to live a rich childhood, full of the best things I loved when I was small - like making mud pies, having a digging patch, having fun getting messy and having time to explore. This is where the learning takes place- often down on the floor or out in the garden and often with other like-minded people who laugh lots! My passion is that each child should grow up knowing how special they are, having super confidence and self-esteem- something so many of us adults still struggle with. As children go through my nursery, I want them to have roots and wings- roots to know who they are and the special place they have in the world, and wings to exercise what they’ve learnt in their ongoing journey of life. I’m committed to creating a nursery which embraces each unique child, celebrates small steps as big successes and supports each little person to flourish." Ginny (Nursery Manager)
