  • Who we are

    Creating a calm and natural learning space, for all children to flourish in

    We ensure that a range of learning opportunities are provided, so each child can discover their own interests and talents.

    Little Houghton Day Nursery is in a rural old school building, in the beautiful village of Little Houghton. It is a quiet village, so the children can regularly go on walks to visit the local park, and the Scout’s Field, where they often see various animals. At the nursery, we encourage outdoor learning, for children to have the opportunity to develop their skills in a unique way. These sessions are inspired by ‘Forest School’ activities, where children play using natural resources, and have conversations about the environment – understanding the importance of appreciating our planet.

    Inside the nursery, much of the décor compliments the high ceilings and the building’s rich history and is separated into three bright rooms, with plenty of space for children to explore. Each room is designed to engage their curiosity with age-appropriate resources.

    "The staff have a clear passion for childcare"

    "My little girl has been attending Little Houghton day nursery for a year now. She happily goes off every morning and waves bye to us. We get updates at the end of every day on what she has done and explored. The staff are always welcoming and offer a calm yet stimulating environment for my little girl to develop and thrive. I have absolute confidence in the setting, the staff have a clear passion for childcare with each individual child's needs at the centre of all activities they plan and implement."

    "Little Houghton day nursery is such a wonderful environment for my daughter to learn, play and be supported. The staff are excellent providing great activities and encouraging my daughters interests. The food is also very good and we get a lot of information about how my daughter is getting on."

    "Couldn’t recommend the nursery or the staff more!"

    "My son has been at Little Houghton Day Nursery for over a year now, and after some bad experiences from other local nurseries, this was like a breath of fresh air, the staff are so caring and attentive, no question is too big or too silly and the communication with the nursery is brilliant. My son has gone from strength to strength here and have never had any doubts or concerns leaving him there during the day. Couldn’t recommend the nursery or the staff more!"
