Learning and activities
Little Owls Shepherds Lane provides interesting, high quality activities to help children learn through play. Our highly trained staff are supported by qualified teachers offering Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum support.
Children enjoy exciting and challenging activities during free play and led sessions in small groups. Educational activities boost children’s communication and language development, and we offer individual support plans for children with specific needs. There’s also plenty of time for imaginative playtime fun in our spacious gardens.
Keeping in touch
Each child has a key worker and a significant other, who both know the child well and are the main points of contact for families.
We keep in touch with parents using the free Tapestry app, an online journal sharing your child’s key moments, from lunch to photos of activities and detailed observations of their learning and progress.

Here’s what Little Owls Shepherd’s Lane parents have to say:
‘Little Owls has been a home away from home for my child. He got to know the local culture there, made a lot of friends and improved his English skills a great deal.’
‘The staff are lovely, it is a happy and healthy environment, lots of choices/things for the children to do. The children are safe once in the nursery which is a big thing for us.’
‘All of the staff are lovely, very friendly and welcoming. I had my sons name down to attend a different nursery but after meeting the staff at Shepherd’s Lane I put him in this nursery instead! They are all really good with all of the children. My son’s key worker is very knowledgeable and gives him the attention, care and support that he needs for his development.’
