Little Gems Nursery

Little Gems at Clevelands Preparatory School 

Welcome to Little Gems at Clevelands, where children aged 6 months to 4 years old discover, learn, and play in a safe and nurturing environment.

Our Nursery offers a range of activities and classes designed to support children’s physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development. Experienced teachers work closely with each child, providing personalised attention and guidance as they grow and learn. With specialist teachers in P.E., French and  Music, our little ones are afforded the same enriching opportunities as those in our Prep school.

We have carefully designed each of our Nursery classes to be bright, welcoming, and child-centred. Our range of play areas includes a designated reading corner, arts and crafts station, home area, sand and water stations, and loose parts/messy play areas to inspire sensory cognition and exploration. Using neutral colours in spacious classrooms, these areas encourage children to explore, experiment, and play.

All our Nursery pupils are guaranteed automatic entry into our Reception. We ensure a smooth transition into Reception through our welcoming and supportive environment alongside a wide range of activities that are designed to stimulate children’s curiosity, creativity, and confidence to be ‘Reception ready’. This is furthered through our combination of structured and child-led activities which help children develop their skills and knowledge at their own pace.
