Setting will re-open from 01/06/2020.

Due to the current situation with Covid-19, to ensure the safety of our children and staff the site is closed to visitors. As a result we have created a virtual tour of the setting to give you an insight to the opportunities and experiences we offer. Alongside this we are contactable via email and telephone and can arrange 1:1 meetings through Zoom to enable you to meet staff and ask any questions you may have.

Little Badgers Pre-School is an OFSTED registered setting situated in Tilehurst, caring for up to 30 children at any one time. We operate within a spacious building, set in extensive grounds and uphold our ethos of 'Learning together as individuals' with a well established theme of outdoor learning.

Our team of highly qualified childcare practitioners are dedicated to the education, care and well-being of your child. They work to meet the individual needs of the children in our care, within a welcoming and homely environment.
