Our Ethos

The needs of each individual child is at the heart of everything we do.  Heavily influenced by the principles of Maria Montessori and Reggio Emilia we have created calm ordered nurseries  using lots of natural heurestic resources  promoting  independance and purposful play.  Each session provides children with lots of opportinities for creative expression and sensory exploration.  

"I am so glad George had the opportunity to go to Little Learners before moving onto preschool, it really has been a brilliant gentle introduction for him."
