Little Learners Playgroup

Little Learners is a drop off playgroup which provides a seamless learning experience for children aged 2 to 4 years old.

It is run by Sylwia Ferreday, a qualified primary school teacher with experience in early years education and a mum to a 5 year old.

Our varied and exciting programme which follows the Early Years Foundation Stage, provides an excellent foundation for learning and ensures that when your child enters pre-preparatory or nursery school they are confident, well grounded and ready to face the challenges ahead.





Our timetable offers a balanced of structured play, child initiated play and small group activities. Your child will be assigned a Key worker who is responsible for planning and teaching children individually. Each child has a Learning Journey book which starts when they enter Little Learners. All our learning resources are carefully selected and especially designed for early years.

Little Learners is an ideal first time away from home experience and the staff ensure a warm, caring, creative and stimulating atmosphere.

Isobel's learnt a lot at LLs and absolutely loves it. I think you're offering something unique in the area - a fun and supportive learning experience in a nurturing home-like environment. It deserves to be a great success!

My son has been attending Little Learners for the last 6 months. He has loved it from his very first session and continues to love it now. He looks forward to each session and runs out happily telling me everything he's done. During his time at Little Learners, thanks to Sylwia, Dori and Olga's hardwork, I have seen my son develop enormously. The atmosphere of each session is friendly, calm and welcoming and it is clear that all children feel safe and happy. I would wholeheartedly recommended Little Learners to any parent looking for a playgroup for their child.

Little Learner's is perfect for my daughter of 2.5 years. Sylwia, Dori and Olga offer far more than 'childcare', the sessions are designed to be educational and Sylwia's experience as a teacher is evident in the resources she provides. Children are encouraged to be independent but also to take instruction and work/play together. It is so important for me to know that my daughter is being engaged and stretched, whilst also having a good time.

I cannot recommend Little Learners highly enough. Such thoughtful preparation of all the activities is clear and I have seen evidence already that my daughter is learning valuable skills through play and fun. The leaders, Sylwia and Dori, have created a happy atmosphere and the children are clearly settled and confident in their care. One happy little girl equals one happy mummy! Thank you Little Learners.

This all sounds fabulous, so thoughtful and the right balance of play and education, in a fun way. I love what you're doing with the playgroup and Emily loves her 'play school', you're doing a wonderful job. My only feedback would be more sessions please, perhaps Monday 😉 ?! Thank you again, we're really pleased with how this developing Emily.

Little learners has been my 2 1/2 year old sons first play group which he does without me and he thoroughly enjoys it. In the short time he has been attending I have noticed his vocabulary expanding and his love of numbers growing every week. He is always happy when i collect him and enthusiastically tells me all about the singing, numbers and train playing he has been doing. I have also had a lot of feedback from Sylwia and Dori on how he is getting on, what he likes doing and what they are working on which is really reassuring. It's a great, gentle safe and fun playgroup.

I was very impressed with Little Learners Playgroup when came for a free taster session. Sylvia is very professional and friendly. My daughter is on waiting list- starting in June next year - when she turns 2.
