Day Nursery Reading

Our nursery has been on the University of Reading campus for over 20 years. Little Learners was purpose built in 2009 to provide more childcare places to students and staff of the University of Reading. We have since welcomed everyone to come and visit our nursery. With a capacity of 106 places for full day care, the nursery is available for children aged from three months to five years and is staffed by a team of experienced and professional childcare practitioners.

Little Learners is proudly part of Reading University Students’ Union, a charity that aims to improve the experiences of students at the University of Reading’.


Exceptional Day Nursery Reading

Our purpose built facility has five child-centred rooms that lead directly onto the outdoor area. Each room is designed to be flexible to meet the needs of the children in which it provides care. The nursery operates as a free-flow nursery; this enables children to explore the nursery both inside and outdoors.

The five child-centred rooms create three key areas of the nursery which include Daisies, Bluebells and Buttercups units. The age ranges within the units can be flexible, however presently the Daisies unit caters for children from 3 months to 2 years, Bluebells unit 2 – 3 years and Buttercups unit 3 years until they leave to go to school.

Every child is unique and in order to meet their needs we plan and adapt our rooms to reflect this, for example in the Autumn term their needs may be related to settling into the nursery, whereas in the summer term their needs may be working on developing peer relationships. No matter what the child’s needs are our experienced team are here to help recognise their needs and plan accordingly to ensure that we deliver a highly beneficial service to all our children.

Our Nursery History 


Over 20 Years ago, we built our day nursery, providing childcare for university students and staff members. This gave parents the ability to study or teach.

Little Learners moved to a purpose built facility in 2009 to provide more childcare placed to students and staff at the University of Reading. We have since welcomed everyone to come and visit our nursery. 

Our nursery welcomes parents and carers in and around Reading. Offering quality childcare for children from 3 months old to 5 years.

First, its location is convenient for parents who are university students, staff and visitors. Second, its staff are very friendly and capable. Our baby is the first time to go to nursery. He likes the nursery after one or two weeks. When I pick up him in the evening, I can see how happy he is. It must be lovely day for him. Thank the wonderful staff working here.
