Government Free Early Entitlement
Our son started at Little Darlings at 9 months old, even though he was very small we were never worried about leaving him with the fantastic staff. They are very welcoming, friendly and professional. He is now just over 18 months and has come on leaps and bounds. The facilities are great and he loves his days at nursery, I would recommend Little Darlings to anyone.
