About the employer

Little Angels was originally established as a single setting childcare provider, the first of its kind in Cramlington, in September 1999 by Debbie and Ian Wylie when they were unable to find suitable childcare for their own son. The company has always been forward-looking, keen to provide the best care for children and the best training and support for staff. 

The company now operates five sites, covering three local authorities as it has expanded opportunistically in response to a range of different situations. It won the tender for the Fenham setting in 2003; it entered Bedlington when parents asked Little Angels to take on a setting that had just gone into administration; it won a tender for childcare at Cramlington Village Primary School; and it was similarly successful in tendering for out-of-school club provision at Amberley Primary in Killingworth.

We are registered for around 500 children across all sites, and the company has developed a well-respected presence in the local communities that it serves. More than 20 years since its inception, Little Angels still seeks to provide the care and education that parents want and need as well as the personal touch and attentive feedback to families that help cement their trust and connection with the staff who care for their children. These qualities are the foundation on which Little Angels is built and embody the care that it offers.

Over the last year, we have weathered the pandemic and streamlined our provision. Our parents have remained very supportive of Little Angels and the care we have provided throughout the crisis, as we ensured that our settings continued to serve the needs of critical workers, their children and families, as well as vulnerable children during difficult times.
