Little Treasures

Little Treasures Day Nursery opened in 2006 and is part of Wheeler Primary School and the HCAT family. The Nursery is based within Rainbow Centre and also uses the school site. We provide care for children aged 0-5 years, with children accessing day-care, 2-year-old funding and the 3 year old 30 hour funding.

We are currently rated ‘Good’ with OfSTED and strive daily to further develop our practice and provision, whilst maintaining our high standards. We work closely with the children and their families to tailor their care, learning and development to their individual needs.

At Little Treasures, we pride ourselves on having committed and highly skilled staff and currently have a team of 16 Early Years Practitioners, who are all are fully qualified Level 3 Practitioners. A number of the staff team have also also completed a degree in Early Childhood Studies and a further 2 are qualified teachers.
