Little Ellies

Childcare for 6 months to 5 years of age in a warm, caring and welcoming environment.

Welcome to Little Ellies Childcare Provision

Little Ellies is a childcare provision based within and run by Ellen Wilkinson Primary School. We offer full or part time childcare in a safe, caring, positive and stimulating environment for your child to learn, grow and succeed – all year round (51 weeks).

We accept children from 6 months to 5 years of age, all our staff are qualified and most have considerable experience of working in the local community.

At Little Ellies, we strongly believe in providing a nurturing and engaging environment to enhance your child’s learning in all areas through communication and play.

Little Ellies is a not for profit PVI Nursery, which means that we do not make a profit from our parents or the children that we look after (unlike most Nursery / childcare providers). The childcare is run by Ellen Wilkinson Primary School, overviewed by the Headteacher. The School sets a business plan each year (to cover the projected costs) and we charge our parents fees to cover that cost. If we were to make a small profit then that would be reinvested back into our operation through the purchase of new facilities / play equipment etc. 

We ensure our children are always within or exceed statutory care ratios (as required by law) and that our staff are paid at least the minimum London Living wage rate.  

If you would like more detailed information about Little Ellies, the handbook should provide this and answer any questions you may have. However, if there is anything you would like clarified further please contact us and we will be pleased to help.

We know placing your child into day care can be a big decision.

We want you to feel confident about the quality of care and education that your child will receive.

Visits to our setting are encouraged, please telephone the office and arrange to come and see us in action!

Visits are usually 10am or 2pm daily - just give us 48 hours notice to enable us to make sure someone is on hand to answer your questions and to give you the tour of our lovely facilities.
