Childcare Leicestershire


At Little Poppets Nursery we fully understand the difficult decisions parents have to make when looking for childcare in Leicester that’s why we do our utmost to ensure that the care we provide for children meets the high standards that parents look for. Parents look for childcare for many reasons; maybe they have to go back to work and need someone to provide the level of care that they themselves provide or maybe they are looking to develop their childs’ social and everyday skills.

Being open from 7:15 am – 6:00 pm really helps parents who have to start early or finish late.

Our nursery was established in 1989 and from then we have continued to grow and develop into the popular nursery that we are today. Every member of staff that we employ has a strong focus on providing childcare that is exceptional. They regularly undertake training to ensure they remain at the best level they can so that the children benefit from being taught by staff who are up to date with current practice. We also set them fun targets to keep staff motivated.

The children are the main focus at our nursery and everything that we do is to encourage continuous development and make learning fun and enjoyable. We encourage learning both indoors and out – we provide stimulating activities to build strong foundations to help every individual child reach their full potential. The rooms are bright and inviting and the outdoor area has equipment which helps to develop confidence and encourage health and well being.

With the childcare that we provide in Leicester we have a strong emphasis on meal times as we feel that this is important. We have enlisted the help of a dietician to ensure that meals are nutritious and healthy for the children. All meals are freshly prepared and rotated on a 5 weekly basis.

There are options available to help with the cost of childcare, these include:

free nursery places – five 3 hour sessions per week for all 3-4 year olds
child tax credit – 9 out of 10 families are entitled to this whether they work or not
working tax credit – helps working parents with childcare costs
child care vouchers – a pre tax benefit from employers to help with nursery fees

For more information on the above options speak to a member of staff who will try to help as much as they can.
