About Little Lambs Pre School

Little Lambs opened in 2009 as a small “home from home” style nursery for children aged 2-11 years. Our aim is to bring imagination, fun and exploration to all our children. We aim to provide good quality childcare within a friendly, family atmosphere and provide a personalised experience for each and every child for the best possible start in life.

Our nursery is an ideal place for your child to learn and develop important life skills. Little Lambs is a converted farm building in the rural picturesque area of Grimoldby.

Little Lambs is registered for a maximum of 18 children so that we can give your child added personal care and experience they need. Little Lambs value every child as an individual and we are never to busy to fulfil their requirements.

Within the setting we believe a secure home from home feel will help your child settle in without the daunting experience of being away from you. During the session your child attends they will have the chance to choose what THEY would like to do throughout the day as well as adult led activities.

Our “messy area” gives each and every child a chance to create and experiment with different textures and artistic materials. This will be available to them throughout the day meeting their own individual needs and choice.

As well as all the thriving chances in the room it is equally important to have an area to relax and take some time out. A well equipped book corner with soft furnishings gives the chance to re-charge and reflect as well as exploring books and quiet activities. This area will be used by all at circle time where we will share books, songs and group games.

We firmly believe that a hands on approach helps them to develop into confident young characters.

Whilst your child is at Little Lambs they will have chance to take part in cooking, growing their own produce and creating from a range of recycled materials (how many things can you make with a card board box!)

Bringing back the imagination of role play and natural resources your child’s learning will always be fun! With Highly qualified staff, Little Lambs is the perfect start in Early Years.

Parent Views

Little Lambs is superb! A caring and friendly setting with wonderful staff. My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed it and will miss everything about Little Lambs. My only regret is we did not find Kathryn and her team sooner!

The children are always getting their hands dirty and exploring which is great for their learning. They are encouraged to play outside in all weathers which is also great for their development. I cannot fault any of the care that has been provided for my children. Kathryn and Pippa are extremely helpful and always there to give Little lambs are so flexible… Unlike some other childcare providers! so it’s ideal for us working parents.

The staff are brilliant so supportive and friendly. We love the home from home feeling you get at little lambs which makes the nursery feel like a little family

Maisie loves going to Little Lambs, the staff are brilliant and the all the activities they do. She is really thriving there, and I’m extremely happy I choose Little Lambs for her!
