about us

Little Nightingales is a small, friendly, home-from-home day nursery. We provide places for 40 children and are located in the lovely conservation area of London Colney with its traditional village sense of community. The nursery itself is a carefully converted 200-year-old cottage, where the layout reflects and retains its warm homely atmosphere.

Our Nursery

We’re lucky enough to be within walking distance of the River Colne where our own Little Nightingales have great fun feeding the ducks at the same time as learning about, interacting with and experiencing nature. Willows Farm is a close neighbour and there are frequent visits for the children to learn about the animals. There’s rarely a dull moment at Little Nightingales, which means you take home a cheerful child, stimulated daily by new sights and sounds and eager to return the next day.

We warmly welcome children from 3 months to 5 years and by offering a range of different sessions and providing an all-inclusive package, we aim to make your life simpler by eliminating many of the day-to-day childcare stresses and concerns.
