Your child will benefit hugely from the small group sizes and the structured approach to the individual care every child receives from the exceptionally highly qualified and talented team.

Our Day Nursery offers superb facilities for all the different age groups and has available a Baby Room, Nursery and Pre School. Little Owls has the added advantage of being sited in a stunning rural location on the Isle of Wedmore with views across to the Mendips.

An easy to find location with excellent access to surrounding villages and the motorway. We had our Ofsted Inspection in 2018. Please Click Here to see the full report and read the many positive comments we received from our inspector.

Our holistic approach encompasses a range of Outdoor activities; looking and learning about the changing world around us. Our rural setting is ideal for this. For the older children we have daily access to the wonderful adjoining paddock, enabling them to develop their Nature Watching skills and participate in Forest School Activities. We have a large secure themed garden, where we use nature and the environment to encourage and inspire the children to grow in confidence, independence and self esteem through mastering small outdoor tasks. The garden also has a vegetable patch, activity areas for free play and our very own wooden pirate ship.

We are proud to work in close partnership with all our local schools, to ease the transition from pre-school to school.

All the team at Little Owls are qualified Early Years Educators. We also have specialists in every area to best meet the needs of your child, whatever their age.

We pride ourselves on our range of activities, offering Forest School, Singing, Music and Dance, Gardening and Cooking sessions weekly.

Every child's progress is carefully recorded and photographed in their personal file, providing a complete visual and written record of their development.
