Helping parents and children every step of the way

Little Shipmates Group Ltd

We understand that leaving a child at nursery for the first time can be a challenging experience for a parent. That is why we offer special “stay and play” sessions, home visits, and plenty of other options to ensure the transition is a smooth and enjoyable experience for everyone. Just give us a call to discuss your needs with a member of our friendly team.

A huge range of funding support options

Little Shipmates Group Ltd

At The Little Shipmates Family, we believe that every child should have the chance to experience nursery, no matter what their circumstances. We also understand that childcare can create a considerable financial strain on families. For this reason, we will happily accept all forms of funding support to help cover the costs of our day nurseries – including workplace voucher schemes, student finance, government support and tax credits. We also offer ‘stretched funding’ for the Early Years Entitlement Funding scheme, which means that all three-year-olds can have ten hours’ free childcare per week, all year from the term after their third birthday.
