Brilliant childcare provider, lovely staff. My daughter has attended little rockets since she was 2yrs old and now she is nearly 6yrs old and still currently attending. Little Rockets have been important to me and my daughter. The relationship I have with them is great and my daughter loves attending. The staff make Little Rockets by far. I’ve never had any problems at all and appreciate all they do for my daughter. They have played a big part in developing my daughter by far. So thanks Little Rockets

My little boy has been attending here since September and he adores coming. The staff are always changing the toys based on their theme that week and the activities are always engaging. My little boy is always talking about what he learned at rockets and the friends he has made. Will be sad for him to leave in July to go to reception

I recommend little rockets to everyone I know with kids! The staff are fantastic, extremely welcoming and friendly. Very helpful and will always listen to any problem or concern I have as a mother with anxiety! My daughter has been going for 1.5 years now and she loves it at little rockets and has come on leaps and bounds with her confidence as she is shy, thanks to the work, support and guidance the staff have given her. The nursery itself is brilliant and my daughter loves going to their park on sunny days. Cannot praise LR enough! X

My 2 children have only attended little rockets for a short time and they can't rate it enough. They absoulty love going, and count down the days till they are back. The staff are amazing and easy to connect with. Can't wait till our youngest is 2 so he can start there as well.
