The Little School Daycare (1)

Support offered for children with special educational needs and disabilities

The Little School is situated in Brentford.  We provide high quality care and exceptional education for babies, toddlers and pre-school children.

We operate from 2 separate buildings which provide safe, secure and age appropriate rooms.  Each of the rooms have specialised facilities to support the individual child's learning and development, including a sensory and soft play room.

We have a dedicated and committed staff team who are all either qualified, or are studying towards a qualification in childcare. All staff are responsible for the day-to-day care of the child as well as reporting to parents/guardians on a daily basis.

We pride ourselves in having a staff team who recognise the individual needs of both children and parents.
