Nursery and Preschool

Celebrating 20 years of providing quality childcare and early year education.

Our unique open-plan lay-out at Little Ark Nursery means that our early years setting has a wonderful family feel – with each age group able to see and interact with each other as they learn and discover the world around them.

In our Ofsted Registered Good-rated childcare setting, we have a dedicated baby unit complete with a cosy sleeping area, and rooms for our 1 year olds, 2 year olds and pre-school, plus our very own roof garden with views across Sheffield.

The Famly app ensures that parents are in touch in real time with their child whilst they are with us. Our nursery team are so dedicated to supporting and caring for each child and helping them grow into the amazing little champion they were born to be.

Why not book a look-round visit and start your journey with the Little Ark family today?!
