Little Gems Day Nursery opened in 1999 and became part of the Clear Group in 2005. Little Gems offers full day care for children aged from 3 months to school age.
Our nursery consists of a large house which caters for children under 3 years of age, while the purpose built extension has two large rooms for pre-school and after-school children. The large garden is divided into three sections offering a variety of adventurous activities for the children’s individual needs. Every day at Little Gems nursery is fun-filled and exciting with many different activities organised for each age group.
Regular visitors to Little Gems
The baby unit enjoys a weekly visit from Jo Jingles, along with a variety of well planned activities both indoor and out. Toddlers enjoy a busy day dressing up, painting, baking, role playing and of course potty training with stickers for every achievement!
Pre-school children have a stimulating and busy day, enjoying many activities following the pre-school curriculum. Regular visitors such as Debutots and Zoo Lab support the pre-school curriculum. Monthly outings linked to the pre-school topic ensures the children have a stimulating and fun filled day.

We currently have 40 PEAG places for pre-school. Our 2019 ETI inspection gave us a ‘Outstanding’ rating.
