Early Years Private, Voluntary & Independent Settings


We are a 80 place open plan nursery based on the piazza on kennet island

At Little kingdom daycare we believe that early childhood is the foundation for a child’s development and learning should be valued and respected in its own right. We also believe that children should become totally wholesome adults that we and the world can be proud of: To be able to create a generation of secure, loving, caring and respectful members of the community with economic well being.

For every individual to be ambitious and ‘‘ reach for the stars’’. Little Kingdom aims to put the foundations of this belief into the children at the beginning of their educational journey.
