About Us

Little Smarties Bishops Cleeve is owned by the Gray family & this is their second nursery. The first Little Smarties is in Cheltenham and has achieved two OFSTED outstanding awards, a 5 star food hygiene award and enjoys an excellent reputation locally. We aim to build on this achievement with our new nursery.

We are located at the top of Pecked Lane, next to the steam railway line on the border between Bishops Cleeve and Woodmancote.
It was formerly the Royal British Legion Club and has been completely transformed by the Gray's investment.

The location means that the children enjoy the spectacle of steam trains running past our fabulous gardens.

Inside the nursery, the steam train theme follows on with three internal railway carriages in addition to our four huge nursery rooms. These carriages are set up for internal activities that will be accessible to all our children. They include a sensory carriage, an IT & music Carriage and the most amazing enchanted reading carriage.

We will have a small farmyard area and are planning to raise piglets very soon. There's also a farming/ growing area which the children will use to cultivate their own vegetables. We feel confident that you'll find our nursery very unique!

Our menus are organic and we pride ourselves on our home cooked food just as they do in our Cheltenham nursery. We have a fantastic chef on site, grow our own vegetables and rotate our menus every 11 days so the children will enjoy a full range of delicious, nutritious meals.
We also pride ourselves on accommodating children with allergies and intolerance's so please rest assured that we will work with you to ensure you are happy with the meals we provide your child.

We feel our most important asset is our staff. We recruit highly qualified & experienced professionals so we think that this sets us apart.We believe very passionately that your child deserves to be looked after by the best staff who love their jobs and will love your child.

Many thanks for your Interest in Little Smarties, If you require any further info please contact me directly on.

Professional and experienced staff with a very friendly and accommodating atmosphere, the nursery has amazing activity rooms, delicious food and our little one loves it. I’m always confident leaving her there in the capable hands of her carers.

I can’t overemphasise how good this nursery is. The standard and quality is nothing short of AMAZING. We have our 2 year old here and he absolutely loves it. We have enjoyed the attention to detail especially with the choice of meals for the children and the willingness of the staff to accommodate every child. The staff are always happy to chat to us and we feel at peace knowing that our precious boy is in safe hands. I have never had to worry for a second about his well being when at nursery. Please send your kids here and thank me later

Our pre-schooler attends this setting and absolutely loves it! From a parent’s point of view we feel that we are placing our child
in the care of people with a wealth of experience, knowledge and enthusiasm for childcare. Each member of staff knows my child and us. We always feel welcomed, well informed and included in nursery life. The setting itself is brilliant - fully resourced, clean and bright with lovely outdoor space. Our baby is already booked in to start in a years time! We would highly recommend Little Smarties, Bishops Cleeve.
