Your child is in 'Outstanding' hands
Our award winning ‘Outstanding’ nursery was established in October 2001 and is owned by former local health visitor Jane Clive and her husband Charlie.
We offer high quality, affordable childcare and welcome children from three months to five years old. At Little Blossoms we nurture and care for your child to ensure that their transition from the familiarity of home into our environment allows both you and your child to feel confident in our care.
We recognise and celebrate that all children are individuals and we encourage the little ones in our care to become confident, independent and to develop their own sense of self.
Our aim is to provide a warm, friendly, happy environment where each child is encouraged to reach their full potential through praise, sensitivity and mutual respect.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage which promotes learning through play with a focus on the child as an individual. Please click here for a parents guide on the EYFS.
Mealtime & Nutrition
A healthy balanced diet is provided in our award winning 5 stars on the door* kitchen with a hot farmhouse lunch at 12pm, a light tea at 4pm with snacks provided mid-morning and afternoon.
Breakfast is offered to the babies in the Seedlings department as part of their weaning programme and is served between the hours of 8am and 9am.
Menu’s operate on a four week rota and all meals are home cooked and nutritionally well-balanced. The Chefs have designed the menu using the new voluntary food and drink guidelines for Early Years settings in England. This is part of the Eat better start better programme helping young children to eat well. Not only will the meals we are providing be freshly homemade using homegrown and local produce, but each day the children will be receiving their appropriate portions of Starchy foods, fruit and vegetables, meat ,f ish, eggs, beans and non-dairy sources of protein, and milk and dairy foods. This has meant carefully chosing lunch, pudding and tea to ensure the balance is right! We have incorporated foods from around the world, and there is a vegetarian option every day.
All dietary requirements are catered for.We are a nut-free nursery and all ingredients used in the preparation of food are fresh from the farm shop or sourced as locally as possible.
