fun with the sprinklerLittle Pickles Playhouse is situated in the small rural village of Widford. It is run from a 4 bedroom semi-detached family home with a large garden which backs on to open fields. There is a dedicated playroom, WC and sleeping room and a variety of resources and equipment to suit children from birth to primary school leaving age. We pride ourselves on providing an enjoyable, fun, safe, stimulating and stable learning environment for all children. We have a reliable, honest and trustworthy service which all parents and carers can value.

As the setting grew we decided to form Little Pickles Playhouse in 2013. Our aim is to care for your children as much as you do. Here, your children’s individual needs and our best practise methods come as standard. Watching your children grow and develop, learn new skills and try new things is our passion. There is nothing as rewarding as seeing a child who is struggling finally achieve a new goal.

kids-playing with bricksLittle Pickles Playhouse is set in a homely environment where children feel safe and secure. Led by fully trained childcare practitioners, activities range from child initiated play to structured activities and small group work. Children are encouraged to be independent, individuals and self-confident. We offer strong community links with local Schools which makes transition to school smooth and as stress free as possible. Our age range means continuity of care from babies till secondary school whilst allowing siblings to stay together. The age mixed play allows the younger children to learn skills and sophisticated ways of thinking from older ones, and it allows the older ones to learn how to nurture, lead and be the mature person in a relationship.

Our journey to become an ‘Outstanding’ Ofsted graded setting has been built on a firm foundation of staff sharing high expectations of themselves and of children and their relationships with families.
