Little Learners Preschool is based inside ACL Chelmsford, on the Westlands estate, near to the city centre and can care for 19 children per session aged between 3 months and 5 years.
Our highly qualified, experienced and dedicated caring team work to generous staff ratios to really get to know the needs of each individual child.
Little Learners follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) to support each child to make progress in their learning and development in partnership with their parents and close family, as well as to keep them safe and healthy.
We have a large secure outdoor area, which children have access to throughout the day, with a large spacious garden that was created in Aug 2022, where the children are free to explore and play with the equipment, as well as climb on the large wooden fort.
We use the secure online software package Tapestry to record and share children’s achievements and progress in their own leaning journal. Parents can add their own observations from home and is great way of keeping in touch.
Term Time Only

Children develop skills that help prepare them for their next stage of learning and in preparation for school, including social skills as they learn how to share and make special friendships.

I knew this was the right nursery for my children. Small and personal. Friendly and creative. The staff are always welcoming. They have been amazing for my children, who are so happy. As a parent, you want to feel security and know that your children are happy. If I ever want advice, they help me and give the tools I need,

“This is a fantastic setting and all the children attending it are very lucky….”
We cannot recommend the preschool enough. Our son was diagnosed as autistic when he was 3 and all the staff at little learners were extremely supportive during this process. Before and after his diagnosis they went above and beyond to help us get and provide the right support for him at the preschool. Without their incredible hard work with him he wouldn’t have achieved some of the amazing things he has or overcome so many challenges. This is a fantastic setting and all the children attending it are very lucky.
