Little Birches Nursery & Preschool in Sonning Common

Our Sonning Common Nursery & Preschool brings children closer to nature and immerses them in a diverse and exciting learning programme.

Our nursery is within a beautiful setting, with the most devoted team, and is the reason why Little Birches Nursery and Preschool in Sonning Common is special.

At Little Birches nursery, we strongly believe that the formative years of a child’s life have such a profound impact in shaping who they become as a person.

The environment at a Little Birches Nursery & Preschool is aided by highly skilled and passionate teachers who allow your child to receive the first-in-class care they deserve.

Our goal is to ensure that each child laughs and smiles every day and becomes a valued personality within the Little Birches community. We want to foster your child’s talents and nurture their growth through tailored and broad experiences that lead to a love of learning and playing with their friends.

We believe that a child can only thrive if they love their time with us, so our primary concern will always be a child’s self-esteem and happiness.
