Welcome to Little Land!

Little Land is a children’s role play centre where every child can use their imagination to create their own world and dream they can be whatever they want to be from a baker, hairdresser, construction worker or even a firefighter to name but a few.  Little Land offers scaled down themed rooms carefully designed and filled with props to offer a creative and educational experience. There is also a small sensory garden for little babies and non-walkers where they can lay or sit down and play with a selection of toys suitable for their age.

We also offer a cafe and seating area for parents / carers to sit and enjoy a light bite and a selection of drinks carefully designed for you to relax whilst being able to watch your child play.

Special Events!

Summer Holidays

We have been busy bees putting together a timetable for the Summer Holidays so you can include a visit to us in your plans. Here’s what’s going on week commencing 29th July…

Every Tuesday
We understand that older children love role play too and imagination doesn’t stop at 6. In these sessions, on a Tuesday, if your slightly older child (8 or under) would enjoy a play session too, they are welcome to attend. However we kindly ask that they respect the role play area and equipment and remain careful and considerate towards our younger children. There will be a cap on the amount of 7 and 8 year olds allowed.
Mindfulness colouring will also be available as well as some lovely craft activities to buy at a small price for your children to enjoy.

Every Wednesday and Thursday
Both our role play area and messy / sensory area upstairs will be open to explore. Double the fun for the same price! (6 years and under only).

Every Friday
On each Friday of the holidays, we will have something very special happening. From face painting to meet and greet some mascots or say hello to our Disney Princess, the fun is endless! Again all for the same price as a normal session. (6 years and under). Schedule is as follows:

2nd – Meet our Bluey Mascot
9th – Meet our Marshall Mascot from Paw Patrol
16th – Face painting
23rd – Meet our Disney Princess Ariel
30th – Meet our Dippy the Dinosaur Mascot

We hope to see you soon!

Meet the Team

Experts in giving your children best start

We are both qualified teachers collectively having over 20 years’ experience in education, specifically Early Years and Key Stage 1, as well as both being parents. We have an enthusiasm for early childhood development and understand the value of how children’s early development is crucial to their success in school and the wider world.

We are passionate about how children thrive and the importance of embracing the schemas behind the theory of children’s development.  We strongly believe, even more so than ever due to the impact of Covid, how fundamental children’s development is and how Little Land can support children’s personal, social and emotional development as well as their communication, language and physical development.

We can’t wait to meet you at our Little Land!
