Little Birches Nursery & Preschool brings children closer to nature. Our Nursery and Preschool immerses them in a diverse and exciting learning programme, all of which takes place within a beautiful setting, by the most devoted team, and is the reason why Little Birches is special.
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 the high teacher ratios that allows your child to get the one-to-one care they deserve. Our goal is to ensure that each child laughs and smiles every day and becomes an important personality within the Little Birches community.
We want to foster your child’s talents and nurture their growth through tailored and broad experiences. At Little Birches our students enjoy a love of learning and playing with their friends. We believe that a child can only thrive if they absolutely love their time with us, so our primary concern will always be a child’s self-esteem and emotional wellbeing
