Little Grasshoppers Nursery

A happy home from home

The Little Grasshoppers Nursery is located within Gresham’s Pre-Prep building – a Grade II Listed building that overlooks playing fields and is conveniently situated in Holt town centre. Sharing all of the school’s facilities, including the vast grounds, 200 acres in all, and swimming pool, the nursery offers endless opportunities for little explorers’ adventures.

A Gresham’s education is classed as ‘Excellent’ across all nine possible categories and for all parts of the school, and our Little Grasshoppers Nursery is no exception.

Our experienced and qualified nursery staff create an environment where each little grasshopper is well-known, feels content in his or her surroundings, and has fun with their friends.

A typical day will see the children learning, exploring, creating and developing their individual personalities as they discover new capabilities and interests each day – whether they attend on a part-time or full-time basis.

Our little grasshoppers will enjoy learning something new every day simply through guided play providing an excellent platform from which children can later embark on their more formal learning as Pre-Prep pupils with confidence. From the age of 2, there are opportunities to experience a variety of subjects including languages, dance, drama and music with specialist teachers. They can also enjoy learning in the open air with our Outdoor Wild Learning School (OWLS).

Taking care of the finer details

We know that as parents of young children there are so many aspects of your child’s day to consider, from their safety and happiness, to their diet and opportunities for positive interactions with other children and adults.

This is why at Little Grasshoppers Nursery we consider the finer details.

  • Class sizes are small.
  • All of the food we provide to children across the school is prepared by Holroyd Howe, a renowned school catering company.
  • Our team consists of qualified Early Years Foundation Stage specialists responsible for overseeing all of our little grasshoppers’ activities.
  • Team members are all enthusiastic and passionate about providing our children with a balanced environment, in which to promote positive behaviours and each child’s self-esteem, alongside developing a sense of security and genuine friendships.
