About the employer

Little Learners Nursery is a private nursery for boys and girls, situated in the grounds of the old school house gardens of Bayton C of E School.

We are lucky enough to be surrounded by beautiful countryside in the rural village of Bayton.

The nursery was opened in September 1997. It can boast a purpose built building with the safety and comfort for all the young children in our care.

We are currently able to accommodate up to 24 children per session; these may vary in age from 2 years to 5 years.

During the summer of 2004 the nursery was extended to accommodate more children and improve the facilities for both staff and children.

We have two playrooms which enable us to appropriately arrange the children according to their intellectual abilities during a variety of activities. They both have a messy area where the children can play with sand, water, playdough and paint as well as a quiet area where children are able to select quiet activities and rest.
