Based across three nurseries in Shropshire and South Staffordshire, Little Green House Childcare provide daycare for children aged 4 months and up. We offer indoor and outdoor sessions to help little people become creative and curious learners.
Little Green House Childcare was established to give children the chance to grow up with a sense of curiosity and awe about the world around us. Nature and seasonality is at the heart of what we do, inspiring our little ones to live a naturally healthy lifestyle that builds confidence and independence for life.
Sadly, our little ones don’t stay with us forever. Our job is to make sure that you and your child feel school ready at the end of your time with us. The year before children leave us, we offer a more structured day to help ease the transition into school life. Children are given a ‘Learning Together’ book which details activities completed at nursery and includes suggestions for further learning at home.
What we believe
83% of adults believe that children today have less freedom to play and explore the outdoors compared with their own childhood. We really think this needs to change!
Our nurseries connect children to nature. Every squelch, plop and rustle begs a new question and a new discovery.
The great outdoors inspires and underpins the learning experiences we provide here. In a safe and supportive environment, we encourage our little adventurers to get out into the fresh air and explore their surroundings.
Across all three of our settings, our children are given the opportunity to take part in Forest School – an innovative and motivational approach to learning outdoors.
At Little Green House, every step is taken to guarantee the safety and security of your child. Our fully qualified teams strike an important balance between safety and freedom. Children are supervised and protected at all times without feeling restricted or closed in.
All of our nurseries are Level 5 Gardening Schools; an accreditation awarded to us by the Royal Horticultural Society.
During gardening sessions, children plant, look after and harvest vegetables grown on site. The best part is trying what we’ve grown!
Weekly cooking sessions, using produce grown on site, help our children to develop a healthy relationship with food and a strong understanding of where it comes from. Afterall a healthy diet stems from an active relationship with food – we’re big believers in learning by doing!
The nutritious meals and snacks we dish up are freshly prepared, locally sourced and seasonally grown. Children are encouraged to try new foods in accordance with their dietary requirements.
