Little Adventures Nursery Cheddar Wins Top Accolade in South-West

Little Adventures Nursery Cheddar is celebrating success after is has been awarded a place in the top 20 nurseries in the South-West. The annual awards by the website are an annual celebration of those nurseries that go the extra mile to make parents happy with their nursery choice.


Based purely on parent reviews, the competition is tough and only the best of the 1,114 nurseries in the South-West win this top accolade, putting the nursery into the top 2% of nurseries in the region.


Set up in 2020, Little Adventures Nursery has also won several other awards including FSB Start Up Business of the Year 2022 as well as being shortlisted as finalists in the Bristol Life Best Education Provider 2022 and Best New Business 2022.


The nursery has also been shortlisted for the National Start-up Business of the Year 2022 and will find out if it has won in a ceremony at the end of this month.


Based on the multi-award-winning Ocean Adventurers indoor play site, it is one of the only nurseries in the South-West that has daily access to such incredible facilities.

Part of a four-strong group of nurseries with other locations in Worle, Weston-super-Mare and Taunton, the chain is set to open its fifth site in Bridgwater in September 2022 after having been selected by Somerset County Council to take on one of its sites.


Speaking of the award win, director Tom Filer said: ‘We are so pleased to have won this award. The team in Cheddar, as well as the teams across the other settings in our group, work incredibly hard to make sure each and every child achieves their full potential and that parents are a fundamental part of that process.’


The nursery attributes some of the success in forming strong relationships with parents to the innovative Famly App, where parents receive real-time information on their child’s day and academic progress.


Having received its Ofsted inspection in November 2021, inspector Elaine Douglas praised the ‘highly qualified management team’ and that ‘parents confirm how much their children love attending the nursery’.


Overall, the inspector concluded that ‘children are confident, happy and secure’ and ‘have good relationships with each other and the staff’.

The Cheddar nursery also has recently expanded its facilities, meaning the number of children they can now look after has increased from 28 to 58.
