Little Scallywags Shard End was registered in 2014 and operates from a converted house on Longmeadow Crescent. The nursery is separated into 5 main rooms, all of which are bright, airy and spacious.
Here at Shard End we can care for 56 children a day, staff are experienced and qualified and some of which have worked for Little Scallywags for a number of years.
The children enjoy fresh food prepared on the premises by our kitchen staff, the menu is full of fruit and vegetables and we do our best to encourage even the fussiest of eaters!
Our outdoor classroom is a keen favourite with our children, particularly our true to life construction role play!
Comments from our recent Ofsted report
“The stimulating environment supports children’s motivation and enables them to become fully engaged in self-directed learning. Children’s behaviour is very good, and they contribute to the familiar daily routines.”
“Practitioners expertly adapt their interactions to support the individual needs of children, providing specific support where needed.”
“Transition on to school is well supported. The manager invites teachers to visit children in the nursery and arranges individual meetings for children with special educational needs and/or disabilities.”
“Pre-school children explore and investigate resources which support them to persevere and problem solve, such as constructing a marble run or building with crates and logs outdoors.”
