Are you attending a course and looking for childcare during your lessons?
We have ofsted registered preschools, that care for children aged 3 month – 5 years old.
Our nurseries are open to learners attending courses, and the local community. You may even be able to receive funding to pay for childcare.
Rated good by Ofsted, at Little Learners we have two playrooms with a maximum of 22 children each day and a generous child/staff ratio. Our Baby area is cosy and homely.
Cygnets room is for babies/toddlers and Swans room for preschool children.
All children have a key person and we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance to ensure your child receives the best possible start.
A healthy snack is offered to children and lunch must be provided by parents/carers.
Our outdoor area is used to its full potential and children have free access to play and learn outside all day if they wish to.
Fees and Funding
We are a community nursery, so parents do not have to attend ACL to register with us.
Our childcare fees are low to enable you to take up the courses that ACL offer.
Fees are dependent on children’s age.
Parents can use their 15 hours FEEE funding for 2, 3 & 4 year olds. We also accept children for 30 hour FEEE funding and we are happy to share those hours with other settings/childminders.
Dependent on the course you take at ACL you may also be eligible for funding to pay for childcare costs.
Please come and see the Nursery in action, no appointment necessary
