We cannot speak highly enough of Little Bears Day-Care and their outstanding team. Our 3 year old son has been so happy here and can’t wait to leave the house to get there. The manager and the team are exceptional, and pay attention to every detail. Using not only the nursery building and excellent playground area, they have also introduced a forest school in the recreation ground opposite which is great for the kids to stretch their legs and understand the concept of directions. Parents receive regular updates and photos on the app, and the end of term report was delivered with great attention and details. And it’s not only the kids who had a great time. Parents are welcomed in to observe, much to my enjoyment on Father’s Day when all the Dads were invited in for bacon sandwiches and croissants, to play with their kids. Such a welcoming and caring community environment, and one in which children can be themselves and thrive. Thank you to the manager and team, and wishing you all the success moving forward.Antony W
“Our daughter started Little Bears Day-Care in June this year and we are absolutely thrilled with her progress already. We were particularly impressed with the settling-in process and how the staff made us feel at ease at all times throughout, which was so comforting being this was a whole new experience for us as a family! Our daughter is always looking forward to attending preschool each week and talks a lot about it at home. Little Bears has a lovely home-from-home feel and the staff are fantastic! I highly recommend Little Bears.”H J
“When we moved here and our son stared at Little Bear’s, he hardly had any English. He was only little and had to adjust to a whole new environment and language. The staff at Little Bear’s were absolutely amazing, working with us to help him settle in, always being incredibly kind and understanding. They always listened when we had any comments or questions and tried to put in place any measures we had discussed. The staff, in general, are all simply wonderful!”Isabelle R
“My son loves going to Little Bears. He is encouraged to learn, have fun and develop. Outdoor and indoor play are balanced well and given equal importance. Regular structured activity is themed each week to the learning intentions and as a parent, i feel really connected to my son’s day through the weekly updates and daily information chats with his keyworker. Little Bear’s has responded excellently to the pandemic and I have every confidence in his health and care in this amazing and caring nursery.”Helen G
“Little Bears is a very nurturing nursery. They worked with me and gave me ample time and space to settle my firstborn into the nursery. Both my children have been extremely happy there and always come home bubbling over stories. Excellent, highly qualified staff who are always engaged and treat each child as an individual.”Clare S
“Little Bears Day-Care is a fantastic nursery and surrounded with beautiful nature which is one of the reasons we chose it. Our daughter has a wonderful time at Little Bears, learning, having fun and being outdoors. All the activities she does are well planned to help with development. We are very impressed with the level of care my child receives and the staff are friendly, welcoming and enthusiastic. We would highly recommend this nursery to any parent or carer.”Soiwyaw L
“Our three year old started at Little Bears Day-Care last September when we moved to Weybridge from London. She had been at her previous nursery for over two years so we were nervous about the transition. The staff at Little Bears Day-Care made the transition so smooth albeit, during a very tumultuous Covid-19 time, we could not believe how easily she settled. She has thrived at Little Bears Day-Care and looks forward to going every single day. She has made so many friends and adores all the teachers. They have a unique way of putting the children’s social development first while teaching the fundamentals like phonics and numbers during the fun activities that the kids enjoy. The nursery’s location is idyllic. Set within a retirement village, it feels secure, peaceful and spacious with ample opportunity to explore the outdoors with activities like a forest school and playball. We could not recommend it more! As an added bonus the drop-off and pick up situation is incredibly smooth as it’s on a private road with lots of parking.”Ceylan G
“Thank you so much for all your help and getting us to this stage. You guys are awesome and great to see how confident and happy he is! On Thursday morning he was singing about how excited he was to come to nursery! Thank you’Alexander T
“Little Bears is a fantastic setting with a team of wonderful key workers who are extremely friendly, engaged, helpful and enthusiastic about caring for and teaching our little boy. Our child loves the daily meals and snacks. There are always a few fun occasions planned throughout the year (unless a pandemic gets in the way). The nursery came highly recommended by a friend and we have in turn recommended it to a number of friends, who’ve since enrolled their kids.”Rista V
“Little Bears environment is warm and calming with plenty of free play as well as set up activities for all children if they choose. All staff are caring and professional putting you at ease knowing your child will enjoy their seasons. I am always impressed that at each pick up (yes every day!) I have a full debrief of how my son has been that day, what activities he’s done and how he has eaten, As well as regular updates on a private ‘elog’ account and weekly nursery emails. I always feel able to chat with managers and key workers about any questions be it about development or nursery. Every member of staff knows every child making the setting feel very like a family. Nursery food is excellent with a cook on site. Fresh fruit and healthy cooked meals are made daily. The nursery is clean and COVID-free. The balance of free play and structured learning in a village feel environment makes the nursery a lovely place for any child to grow.”Sarah W
“The manager and her brilliant team of teachers are a parents dream come true. Both my daughters attend Little Bears full time and they are both so happy to go every morning. It’s not just a nursery but a home away from home. The children have both thrived and as a full time working mum I feel happy and confident that they are getting the best care at Little Bears. The setting is fabulous and set in the beautiful grounds of Whiteley Village where the children get to explore the grounds on a weekly basis- incorporating forest school! I saw a number of nurseries before Little Bears and knew from the moment I walked in that it was most definitely the best in the area for my girl’s needs. I highly recommend Little Bears to anyone looking for a home away from home for their Little ones.”Janine D
“We picked Little Bears because of the idyllic setting and surroundings of the nursery. We could only have hoped the nursery itself would be as good as it has been for the past 2 years! The team are attentive, always in great spirits and every single day have our son’s best interests at heart. I absolutely applaud their consistency in being able to be so good at their jobs every minute of every day. We will always be grateful and in their debt for the great start our son has experienced, thank you so much to all the staff at Little Bears Day Nursery!”Tom S
“Little Bears is a wonderful nursery with devoted staff who really care about the children they look after. My daughter has thrived at Little Bears and looks forward to the days that she goes to nursery- she will be sad to leave! They provide a great balance of fun, educational activities throughout the year with a focus on preparation for school. I feel this has really given my daughter the skills that she needs to be ready to start reception class. This includes developing their reading, writing, numeracy and physical education. They have found great ways of making these activities engaging and fun for the children, as well as using the beautiful setting in Whiteley Village and the nursery’s own garden to explore and learn about nature. I cannot commend the staff highly enough- they give lots of feedback and it is always apparent how much they care about the children’s development and emotional needs.”Charlotte S
“There was an occasion in the run up to Christmas when I was later than expected (much) in picking up my child following closing. One call to them set my mind at rest that he would be ok until I was able to get there which was some considerable amount of time later. The staff member had provided my child with snacks and reassurance that I would be there just as soon as I could. On arrival, my child was happy and unaware of the stress I was under in order to get to the nursery as soon as I could. The staff member was understanding and didnt make me feel any worse that I did about the situation.”A B
“My 2-year-old daughter started at Little Bears in September this year. After a couple of tantrums, she settled very quickly. Her key worker was great, very patient and I felt that she was in knowledgeable hands. She enjoys football and monkey music, nature walks and all the crafts they do there. Always coming home with a new painting or clay model. Constantly singing new songs she has learnt. It is in a lovely, safe setting with lots of outside space. I highly recommend the nursery. I couldn’t be happier.”Clare M
“Little Bears is a very special nursery. The manager and her team provide outstanding care and attention to the children, with a special focus on developing social interaction skills from a young age. The nursery has a ‘community’ feel, aided by the many events involving parents such as harvest festival,Ian B
summer sports day and others.
At drop off and collection, the staff are very welcoming to both child and parent, and the comprehensive handover at the start and the end of the day is a constant reassurance.
The recent addition of large computer tablets to develop the children’s ICT skills has been very well received and is very engaging for them.
We visited many local nurseries before making our decision to send our son to Little Bears and we can’t be more pleased with the choice we made.”
“My twin boys have just completed their time at Little Bears. They had an absolutely wonderful time. It is an extremely caring, happy and nurturing environment. The staff were always ready to speak to you about your child and I found that very valuable and reassuring. They were also very helpful duringKirsteen D
the potty training process.
Within a couple of weeks’ of attending Little Bears, my children were settled and walked in each morning very happily. They were kept well entertained throughout the mornings that they were there and were fed well. They also very much enjoyed playing with the other children who were there. I would very much recommend this nursery. We were extremely sad to leave!”
“I moved my daughter from her previous nursery as Little Bears was more convenient. I was worried about moving her and unsettling her, but she settled into Little Bears straight away and loves it!”Kelly
“Our son attended Little Bears and has only recently left due to him starting school in September. When we first visited we knew it was the right nursery for him. Our experience there has been nothing but outstanding. The staff are so friendly and caring and it was always a pleasure to speak with them.Nina D
The grounds are fabulous with such an amazing space that the nursery make good use of. Food is prepared and cooked on site. You’re also able to see not only what your child ate but how much. Key dates are celebrated giving the children, parents and staff the opportunity to get together. The nursery will continually keep you up to date with your child’s progress. Overall our son loved going in and always enjoyed his time there. He went in with a smile and always came out with a smile. I can not recommend Little Bears enough. Thank you for making his stay so memorable.”
