Little Meadow Group

The Little Peoples School 

Welcome to The Little Meadow Group, the setting that believes success for our little people is achieved when our families are as important to us as the children. We embrace every opportunity to motivate and challenge our little people whilst listening, supporting and involving the special people in their lives.

For many, joining Little Meadow represents the first rung on an educational journey and can, if sensitively delivered, motivate them to become lifelong learners. It is not about having immediate success but embracing a process, feeling valued and confident to try that brings long term success in all our little people do.


Our Philosophy

The Little Meadow Group philosophy is to establish a safe, caring and stimulating educational environment that encourages and challenges each unique child to learn through carefully planned, individualised, rewarding and thought provoking play activities to help them reach their full potential.
As an Ofsted registered setting we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. Whilst the children’s lead and interests form the themes and topics, the activities are all underpinned by a sensitive curriculum that allows staff to individualise their delivery to meet the unique needs of all the children. Whether a child is an active learner, is beginning to engage in critical thinking whether creatively or cognitively or enjoying exploring through play it is the awareness of these characteristics of their learning that allow staff to ensure they motivate each and every child.

Breakfast Club & Out of School Club

In order to support the community need for wrap around care, The Little Meadow Group offer a very successful Out of School Club. Primarily we provide this for the families of Meadowside School but we do open our doors to families that would prefer to transport their children from their primary school each day to utilize our facilities
Whilst this Club is only run a few times a year, it is always very well supported and sees children returning year after year keen to embrace the activities and topics with sensitive staff that have time to sit and listen to the children as they talk about different aspects of their life. Here we see the very youngest 4 year old working in a team with children up to the age of 11. For short periods of time they become a family unit looking out for each other, helping and including.
