Little Discoveries in Frome is a small and friendly 18-place nursery situated on the Frome Community College site. The nursery was established in 1993 and became part of Little Discoveries Childcare Ltd. in 2022. We are fortunate to have a large outdoor space with a covered area allowing us to access outdoors as part of our daily routine. Our nursery provides high quality childcare for children aged between 2 and 5 years. We are open 51 weeks of the year 8am – 6pm and we provide early years funded places.

We are a small, passionate and friendly team of six and welcome you to come and see the nursery. Our core staff team have been here for over 17 years, meaning we are a well-established team/family. The nursery is managed by Sarah Warder and our experienced and qualified staff are passionate about providing a safe and exciting environment in which to nurture each child. We are committed to providing a quality learning environment to support all children in our care through our Highscope approach.

We encourage parents to visit the nursery prior to registering your child, we also advise that you book a space as soon as you can due to high demand for spaces in our sought-after nursery.

Why choose a Highscope Nursery?

Highscope recognises the uniqueness of each child and develops every child’s self confidence by the starting point of learning being what the child can do.
Children have an inborn desire to be active learners, Highscope practitioners work with and extend this natural instinct, so learning opportunities multiply.

Active learning is the central principle of the Highscope approach. There are five essential ingredients to active learning, choice, materials, manipulation, child language & thought and adult scaffolding. The process of active learning leads to depositions such as initiative, independence, decision making, divergent thinking and problem solving, which can’t directly be taught and are skills for lifelong learning.
