Mission At Little Scholars we recognise that early childhood is a crucial time for development, we nurture this small window of opportunity and aim to provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment that will allow each individual child to grow and develop at their own rate.

Little Scholars provides an excellent service for up to 22 children per session, we run a morning and afternoon session and provide after school care. Early childhood is a crucial time for development, we recognise the importance of this small window of opportunity in a child's early years for growth and thus we nurture the child's needs and interests. We aim to provide the perfect environment for children to develop their social, personal and educational skills and learn through a planned Montessori & play based curriculum. We believe in the Montessori Method of giving a child freedom of choice, independence and responsibility to allow them to flourish to their full potential.
