The aim of Little Bears has always been to provide high quality childcare and education within a community Pre-School. A member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance, we are Ofsted registered and a registered charity. 

Our most recent Ofsted inspection took place in February 2018, in which Little Bears was graded “Outstanding or Good” in all areas.

We have an experienced, fully qualified and friendly team, which consists of our supervisor and three members of staff all of whom are DBS (prev CRB) checked. 

All children at Little Bears are assigned an individual member of staff, to act as their “key person”. They are always happy to speak to parents/guardians about any aspect of their child’s time at Little Bears.

We have a designated Child Protection Officer and a SENCO Officer (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) who undergo specialist training. 


We also have a designated member of staff who is responsible for all issues relating to Safeguarding within our setting.  A copy of our Safeguarding policy is included on our 'Policies' page.

The Committee

Little Bears is managed by an elected committee of parent volunteers, which ensures all major decisions relating to the running of the pre-school are taken by parents. The committee consists of three officers (the Chair, Secretary and Treasurer) along with a number of other committee members.
