The Little House School was registered in January 1998 and the Day Nursery was started in 2006. It operates from a lovely large, two storey building in the London borough of Westminster.

The nursery is a home from home for children aged between 3 months and 5 years and is open from 8am to 6pm for 50 weeks of the year. It is only closed for a week at Christmas and for bank holidays.

All staff have child care qualifications, current DSB, references, First Aid, Safeguarding, Food Hygiene and they stay at the nursery for many years.

The Little House follows a Montessori based curriculum combined with the EYFS with an emphasis on the natural world, literacy and art. Children are well prepared for their next schools.

The nursery has a private, secure playground which is not overlooked as well as the use of a very close large green space and two gardens in close proximity. Children go outside once/twice a day.

Ratios of staff to children are excellent. 1:2/3 in the under two's room. 1:3/4 in the 2 years to 2.5 room and 1:4/6 in the 2.5 to 5 years room.

There is an emphasis upon organic nutrition and healthy eating with lunch being supplied by a well established catering company known as Madame Gautier who have very high standards of nutrition and hygiene.

Children enjoy many varied activities such as ballet, Yoga, Theatrebugs and make outings to various nearby places of interest such as Tate Britain but also to the nearby playgrounds. As children get older, they go further afield. The ratio for outings is 1:2 until the children are aged 4 when it changes to 1:3.

The Little House also runs a very popular after school club with private transport for the collection of the children from various local schools plus a thriving holiday club. These are for children aged between 4 and 8. 

After school club children have classes in Stretch 'N Grow, French, Geography, Homework Club, Art/Craft and Holiday Club children go out to many different events and museums such as The Chelsea Physic Garden, The Horniman Museum, London Museum, Kew Gardens just to name a few.

The nursery/school has a wonderful reputation within the local area as an environment in which children thrive and are very happy.
