Quality Childcare

At Little Lionhearts Nursery School, we believe quality childcare is created by providing nurturing enabling environments, positive relationships and tailor made learning opportunities. We foster learning for children from 3 months to 5 years.

Get Started

A Nurturing Environment

Another Home

Our environments are created with high quality furniture and resources that reflect our children’s interest as well as provide that warmth, home like atmosphere with a dash of nature. The furniture is child sized to promote independence from an early age and our rooms have a balance of calm colours and nature to ensure it is not too overstimulating but brings that tranquility.

Facility & Safety

We prioritises cleanliness, tidiness, and a welcoming ambiance. Our facilities are kept to the highest standards, ensuring a clean and orderly environment. Child safety is paramount, with secure access doors and comprehensive CCTV surveillance therefore when it comes to the safety of your children you can be rest assured.

Learn & Play

Each of our rooms are bespoken to the abilities of the children within our nursery, while bringing a vibrancy of nature indoors. Our learning experiences are innovative and versatile to support the diversity we hold within our nursery. The children flourish through their individual interests while also invoking a love for reading through our story gems that helps the children to learn new topics, ways of life. 

Key Person

Positive relationships play a key part in helping children settle into the nursery and making them feel secure, safe. At Little Lionhearts Nursery we follow a key person approach. There will be a person allocated to your child who will help your child to smoothly settle in, carry out observations, assessments and be able to discuss the development of your child with you.

Support & Guidance

We are dedicated to supporting parents as well as children. We have an open door policy that allows parents to seek support from team members. We understand parenting is never easy and therefore we like to work in partnership with our parents to support them. Your key person will be able to provide you with advice on your child’s development and learning. The daily feedback will give you insight of the day your child has had and what they have eaten.

Healthy Eating

At Little Lionhearts Nursery School, we understand the importance of nutrition in a child’s growth. Our menus, crafted by specialist nutritionists, are tailored to meet the developmental needs of young children. We adhere to guidelines from the World Health Organization, NHS, and local health authorities. Our dedicated chefs use fresh ingredients to prepare a diverse array of global cuisines, ensuring meals are not only healthy but also engaging for young palates.

Curriculum & Learning

Little Cubs Room (3-24 months old)

As little Cubs are just discovering all life has to offer. We focus on the prime areas of learning which cover communication and language, Physical development and Personal, social and emotional development. Sensory exploration and enriched language environment is offered, this allows the stimulation needed for the Cubs to understand purposes of toys, learn cause and effect, develop their cognitive development while taking their first steps, saying their first words and building positive relationships.

    Little Lions Room (2-3 years old)

    The children are approaching the age where they are discovering boundaries, developing a sense of doing things independently and transitioning into toilet training.

    At this age we are introducing the children to other areas of learning such as understanding of the world, expressive arts and design, mathematics, and literacy to further extend their explorative minds. The children will learn to take part in mark making and giving meaning to their marks from learning their numbers, to listening to stories, constructing sentences and making their own nursery rhymes, constructing with big blocks, listening to nature sounds and distinguishing them.

      Preschool Pride Room (3-5 years old)

      The children will be challenged further at this age to gain all the life skills they need to transition into the big school from learning to write their name, developing phonics knowledge to help them to read later in life to problem solving activities with numbers, narrating their own stories, building their confidence through drama and performance arts.  They will learn to make positive life choices to help them make a positive difference, through growing a love for living things, planting, speaking about emotions and feelings, and how to self regulate themselves through different strategies such as positive affirmations, breathing exercises, tapping and yoga.

        Guiding Principles Across All Age Groups

        We follow the early years foundation stage that acts as our guideline in child development while incorporating the story gems that enhance experiences of learning that flourishes your child to their fullest potential.

Reading broadens vocabulary, brings the world to life, and sparks imagination, creating awe-inspiring experiences for young minds. Join us in nurturing your child’s love for stories and endless knowledge.

        Extracurricular Activities

        Music & Movement

        Our nursery offers a balanced mix of quiet and active times, catering to young children's shorter attention spans. Music and movement activities, featuring various instruments, promote physical development, creativity, and social skills.


        Cooking classes instill a love for healthy eating in kids, fostering creativity in snack preparation. Kids get to express their culinary ideas, expanding their horizons with fun recipes. Special cooking sessions, like dumpling-making during Chinese New Year, broaden cultural awareness.

        Farm & Animal

        Caring for pets, whether dogs, cats, or fish, aids children's emotional development, fostering self-confidence, empathy, and compassion. Pets also offer social interaction and play, teaching important life skills during extracurricular activities.


        Kids relish gardening, exploring nature by digging in the soil. Gardening provides valuable lessons about plants, animals, and the environment. It fosters respect for nature and nurtures a sense of responsibility towards all living beings.

        A Second Language

        Learning a new language at a young age boosts cognitive abilities and cultural awareness. Our program introduces children to the sounds, words, and phrases of a new language in a fun, engaging way. This early exposure helps develop their memory, enhances creativity, and fosters an appreciation for global cultures.

        Drama & Arts

        In our drama sessions, children explore the world of imagination and expression. Through role-playing, storytelling, and creative activities, they develop communication skills, self-confidence, and empathy. Drama encourages children to understand different perspectives and fosters their ability to express thoughts and feelings creatively..


        Our yoga classes are tailored for young learners, focusing on fun and movement rather than complex poses. These sessions help children improve their motor skills, balance, and coordination. Practicing yoga also encourages a healthy lifestyle, connecting them with their bodies and the natural world.


        Mindfulness exercises are woven into our daily activities, helping children understand and manage their emotions. These simple, age-appropriate practices teach them to focus, remain calm, and develop inner peace. Mindfulness is crucial for emotional regulation, contributing to their overall mental and emotional well-being.

        What Our Families are Saying

        We were deciding between a few local nurseries and decided on Little Lionhearts Nursery School. All the staff members are amazing and really hands on and support the learning needs of each child. We always look forward to the daily update on the app as to what our daughter has eaten, as she is picky eater and have found she eats a lot more around her age group and with the encouragement from her teachers. Thank you Little Lionheart for all your hard work on a daily basis. Highly recommend if your in Sudbury Hill and Harrow area.

        Little Lionheart's is a great nursery. The staff are lovely and there has been low staff turnover which allowed my child to build long-term relationships. We were really satisfied with the experience we had with our first child so we put our youngest there too! Highly recommend this nursery.

        This is an excellent nursery. Most of the staff are very caring, and supportive. My son loves the nursery very much and connects with every staff member. Education and activities are good. My overall experience with this nursery (Little Lionhearts Nursery) is good.

        Good environment, excellent for kids. All staff are very kind and lovely people. My child loves to come here every day and looks forward to coming.
        The only thing I would love is, we should have the food menus like last year.
        Overall, an excellent place for my child.

        Outstanding nursery.
        All staff are welcoming and caring.
        My little one has been there for almost nine months.
        I have no negative comments about any of the services provided or the staff.
        Thanks to everyone in this facility.

        My son has settled in here quickly and talks about how much he enjoys his time there. The staff are friendly and the premises is always clean. They have lots of toys and make a variety of different things like cakes, arts and crafts.

        Very good staff and so nice, everyone is helpful. I am so happy with the nursery, the kids are so happy and active. Even the children play area is nice and clean and they are maintaining it very nicely. All teachers are very nice and the kids are learning new thinks.

        I am so pleased that I chose Little Lionhearts Nursery School for my son. The staff have created such a warm and welcoming environment for the children. The staff are truly incredible and I am confident that they are providing the best opportunities for my son. I greatly appreciate all of the feedback 
        that I receive on a daily basis and I am blown away with the progress he is making during his time with them. The communication is excellent and there is a great choice of food. I am particularly grateful to the Baby Room team for their love and warmth.

        My son started nursery when he was more than a year old initially he was going three times a week and now he is full-time. I am very happy with his development so far. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

        The third nursery I looked at and I was sold on seeing how warm, hands-on, engaging, welcoming, nurturing, and loving the staff were to the little ones. Little Lionhearts adapts to every child's needs and development path and I can already see changes in my baby's social and eating habits. The daily 
        feedback is invaluable and updates via the app are so helpful in ensuring parents stay involved.
        ... My child knows all her teachers and talks about them every day! The teachers here have given my child a second home. They are all friendly and care a lot. The team have been such good influence. The manager and her team have turned this place absolutely worthy of their Ofsted score. I am so sad that my daughter is graduating this year because she will miss this school and so am I.
        This nursery is absolutely fantastic. From members to the staff to the food, facilities, feedback at the end of the day and all the resources. I am very grateful to all of you, especially to the team for all the support, love and help to my baby boy. He started nursery with nine months and from the 
        first day he is being very happy, friendly and sociable. His constant smile describes how good you all make him feel. Also, the nursery provides a daily diary and some pictures that make you feel calm and happy knowing that your child is in the best hands.
        My son started the nursery when he was one year old. Being a covid baby he had hardly met anyone apart from me and my husband, so it was a major change for him. But from the very start the staff has been very supportive and understanding on how much this pandemic has impacted the children, and I think as a parent I had more separation anxiety in leaving him behind. But the staff was always happy to reassure me over the phone or chat and update me on how he is doing. Now six months down on majority of the days he is more than happy to wave me good bye and start his day at the nursery.
        Our child started at Little Lionhearts Nursery School when she was 11 months during the challenging times of Covid. It was difficult for us as parents not to know much about what was happening within the nursery but our child has always shown a lot of enthusiasm going there. We even sent our preschooler 
        for the holiday from time to time and he was also very excited to return. 
        So impressed with Little Lionhearts Nursery School. My son started in February and from the get go they have been absolutely fantastic. Their settling in process is unique to other nurseries and settings I have experienced, they tailor it to the needs of your child for example, increasing hours when 
        the child is ready, allowing parents to wait during these initial sessions and answering all the questions that come with starting at a new nursery. 
        My son started at the nursery for his settling in this week and where other nurseries I felt uneasy, at Little Lionhearts I knew he was instantly happy and ready to go. He came out smiling and waved bye to the staff where other places he’s come out crying.
        The staff are so bubbly and friendly, I love coming to drop off and pick up and wish I could just stay for the whole day, lol.
        So far our experience of Little Lionhearts Nursery has been wonderful. The staff are consistently kind, helpful and understanding. The nursery manager is very flexible and sympathetic to the life of a mother that works shifts and tries to be as accommodating as possible.
        The food is excellent, nutritious and cooked on site. Furthermore, the use of the Blossom educational app to communicate to parents about their child's well-being throughout the day is excellent.

        Their education program is better than high-end schools out there. This school is much more than that. For example In the beginning my kid could not write her name and struggled with composing full sentences. Now, she can write her full name, her vocabulary and grammar are so good and she is able to write and memories the alphabet and numbers and so much more. That’s just a mere fraction of what the school has done. Thank you for everything!

        The staff are welcoming and care so much about our kids that it is impossible not to feel in good hands. Even during the Covid lockdowns, they've managed to keep their doors open and have offered an environment as safe as possible for children and parents. We're now moving out and need to change nursery but our child will miss Little Lionhearts Nursery School very much. It was her second home for sure.

        All the staff are extremely tentative and kind to both children and parents. I have found each and every member of staff to be positive and enthusiastic. Daily updates on the app make for a really good connection with the nursery and your child, I love being able to see what my son has eaten in the day and what was in his nappies! Makes such a big difference! My child is vegan and they have been completely supportive and have provided excellent meals for him. They also include development updates regularly. I can’t recommend this nursery enough.

        ... My 10-month-old daughter has already begun to learn and exhibit new skills and seems very settled despite only commencing in the past few weeks.
        I would highly recommend this nursery to anyone wanting a safe, enjoyable and encouraging environment for their child.
