We are a charity run, Ofsted registered playschool in the lovely community village of Little Eaton in Derbyshire.

Little Eaton Playschool was established in 1969 and has seen many of Little Eaton’s children and grandchildren through it's doors.


We are located in the schoolroom of the United Reformed Church. The setting is highly respected within the village and surrounding areas and has excellent links with Little Eaton Primary School.


We offer places to all children between 2-5 years in our sessions and provide a safe and caring environment for your child with high adult to child ratios.

Our ethos of Quality Learning Through Play uses structured play activities to promote the development of gross and fine motor skills, the first steps before children can use writing tools successfully. Whilst playing and communicating, children are also socialising, learning about the world around them, appreciating and using numbers, shapes and sizes and developing physical and creative skills. Most important however, is that the children never stop having fun and that they enjoy being children.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework and we create an environment where your child can create, explore, imagine and learn. We offer a broad range of educational opportunities and provide experiences that enrich your child’s social, emotional, physical, intellectual, cognitive and creative abilities. We use the latest technologies to enhance learning and ensure children reach their full potential.

Our ongoing commitment to staff training ensures a balance of experience and the very best approaches to pre-school education.

We are proud to use Learning Book  

which brings learning journeys to the digital age, providing parents with an electronic version of their child's progress.  It enables us to record photos of children's work and achievements, which we can then link to the curriculum and continually access their progress. This ensures all parents and carers have an input into their child's learning journey.
