The Little School Daycare (1)
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.
