The Partou experience

At Partou, the children lead the way. They explore their surroundings and learn about the world they live in, by choosing for themselves which activity they want to join in with next.

Our team are there to care for them and keep them safe. To nurture their emerging abilities and encourage them to seize each fun-packed day. But not to tell them what to do next.

Why? Because when children are allowed to choose their own activities, rather than being told what to do, they naturally choose the activities they’re most interested in. And scientific research has shown that being interested in what they’re doing is the easiest and best way for children to learn.

Food & nutrition

Creating healthy eating habits for young children stretches far beyond their time with us. It encourages a lifelong positive relationship with food whilst building healthy bodies and healthy minds. Here’s how we encourage healthy eating habits:

  • Rotating menus: Evidence shows regular exposure to foods helps children to develop their taste for them, yet we still want to offer variety. So, we rotate our menus on a three-to-four-week basis, offering the perfect balance between exposing children to new foods yet allowing them to become familiar with flavours.
  • A lunchtime focus: We prioritise lunch as a time where children can enjoy their food. There is a social aspect to all lunches and, where possible, children are encouraged to take an active interest in the food they eat.
  • Fresh food everyday: We serve children fresh food every day and accommodate many different dietary requirements. We have procedures in place to protect children with food allergies and offer different meal options too. If your child has a dietary requirement, simply let us know as part of our registration process and we’ll make sure we meet the needs of your child.

My boy started nursery when he was 7 days to 7 months old. I was really nervous initially about the idea of leaving him to the nursery at such a young age. Luckily he settled in really well. Within the first week, he started to get engaged with the activities happening at the nursery and drink his mi...

I recommend this nursery to anyone looking for a small, family-friendly setting. My son has learnt so much from his two days a week at nursery. He has been there since he was 9 months old and I feel like he has been well looked after and cared for by the lovely staff.

My little one started nursery when she was 9 months old, I was extremely nervous about leaving her for the first time as she is my first child and has never been left with anyone but myself. However Love Being Little made the transition so easy, we felt so welcome into their little nursery family. Th...

Fantastic nursery, the staff are amazing and do a great job with the children they care for. My little one joined in July 2022 when his previous nursery closed. He settled in so well and I truly believe this was down to the support of all the staff. They went above and beyond. He really enjoyed going...

My daughter started in September 2022 and she'd never really been away from me before that. She's always really happy when I pick her up and she obviously has a great bond with the leaders there. My daughter has food allergies and they are great at accommodating her. My only issue was from just b...

Terrible experience. Pulled up in the car to hear my child screaming from the window. When I walked in there was one manager with about 12 children, my boy was in the corner. Upon checking him in the car he had cut his finger and no one had seen/attended to him. The Head Office found nothing on CCTV ...

I wouldn’t recommend this nursery with the new manager that has started. Some staff are great. Safeguarding with the new manager - unacceptable. My child got kicked in the face, he told me when I went into the nursery so the manager heard. Didn’t notice the blood all around his nose or on his s...

Friendly and helpful staff, healthy snacks and lots of toys and activities. I can tell they are always engaging with the children because my daughter always comes out chatting about everything and they tell me about conversations and things that they’ve had during the day. My daughter is very hig...

My daughter has been attending Love Being little for the last seven months (now sixteen months) and she absolutely loves the staff and nursery. I always have peace of mind that she is being looked after. The staff are all very friendly and show they care about your child.

Love Being Little Day Nursery and Pre-School in Stoke Gifford is an excellent place. The menu is well-selected food providing great nutrition. The activities are fun and same time encourage to learn. Nursery staff are caring and kind. And most importantly my son loves to be there.

Adorable little nursery school, warm, friendly and helpful staff with a cozy and safe atmosphere. My daughter gets “nursery school sick” (like home-sick but the other way around) because she loves it and misses it so much when she’s at home. We haven’t been going here for very long yet but w...
