On visiting the nursery the Manager will be happy to show you round and talk to you in detail about the care and facilities we provide.
Parents are advised to apply for a place for their child as early as possible, even before they are born. Places are often booked up to a year or more in advance. Making an appointment to visit will ensure that someone will be available and can spend some time with you. It is also a good idea to make a list of questions to ask the person showing you round so that you do not forget anything vital.
After applying for a place using our official application form, parents will be informed as soon as possible as to whether a place is available from the date required. If this is accepted, a deposit to the value of one week’s fees will be requested along with written acceptance of the place. The deposit will then be refunded when your child leaves the nursery. It may be necessary to place a child’s name on the waiting list should the place not be available from the date required.
Fees are payable weekly/monthly in advance, please enquire for current prices.
Minimum attendance is 2 days per week.
Lilliputs Nursery is good because:
- Children gain an excellent understanding of the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle.
- Children are thoroughly prepared, physically, socially and emotionally, for their next phase of learning at nursery or school.
- The outdoor provision is excellent and, combined with the forest school experiences, children make very good progress.
- The manager, owner and staff are highly reflective in their practice, which means they have a very strong capacity for improvement.

‘My Husband and I are extremely happy with Lilliputs Nursery. When you first take your child to nursery it is obviously quite daunting and you want them to be happy and well looked after. Lilliputs made this process a lot easier, they have good systems for introducing your child to the nursery and making them feel settled. Our daughter really looks forward to going to nursery and this makes mummy and daddy a lot happier! We have also been impressed with the well planned and thought out activities for the children - lots of these documented with pictures in her online account. We have also been impressed with the staff at Lilliputs- they all seem to enjoy their jobs which creates a really nice atmosphere. In particular for our daughter - Naomi and her team are great! we always gets a very warm welcome when we arrives in the morning. We also feel very confident that Gill and Louise manage the nursery so well and also find time to spend with the children.'

‘We are very happy with our child's progress at nursery, he is genuinely looked after and cared for. All the staff have been utterly professional whilst never once not being extremely approachable and friendly. Our child adores coming to nursery, your outdoor learning suits him and the atmosphere within Lilliputs allows him to explore being him. I have never felt less than happy leaving him in your care.’
Mrs Steele - July 2015
‘I feel that we could not have chosen a better nursery for our daughter, she has developed so much in the last 3 and a half years both educationally and in her confidence. Our daughter absoulutely loves nursery and really enjoys her time with her friends, she has built up a really fantastic bond with her key person. The staff are all fantastic and I feel confident leaving her here.’
