Little Darling Childcare is a unique and special Early Years nursery, run from our own home. Our nursery is a home and workplace combined; warm and welcoming yet well-equipped, family-centred and fully compliant with safety standards.
Children come to us at the very beginning of their learning journey, so we make their development our number one priority right from the start. We follow the Department of Education's Early Years Foundation Stage guidelines to provide your child with a comprehensive pre-school education. On top of this, we lay the foundations for good citizenship and community-centered living. To help us do this, we employ only the most experienced and highly qualified staff.
Our small, hand-picked team of staff provide the attentive care you'd expect from family members combined with the professional skills needed to lay the foundations of your child's future learning. Children take part in a range of well-thought out, educational, interactive and inspiring activities on a daily basis.
Input from parents and a child's wider family is vital, so communication is key. We want parents to help shape us our nursery, in order to provide the kind of care they dream about for their child when they can't provide it themselves.
We put your child at the heart of our family.
During the Covid-19 lockdown in March 2020, our nursery provided over 1,100 hours for FREE childcare for children of NHS staff and keyworkers. We also set-up a community kitchen which, with the help of volunteers and generous donations, served over 130,000 FREE meals to NHS staff, keyworkers and people suffering from Covid-19.
This was our way to say thank you to all the NHS staff and keyworkers as the community battled against Covid-19.
Our current Ofsted rating (September 2018) is "Outstanding".
In 2020, we won the Dental Award for "Best National Smile Month". The judges citation for the award was:
"Little Darling Childcare have created oral health education activities which extend across the whole curriculum and has become embedded in the culture of the nursery. Creating positive habits and behaviours in pre-school children, their families and the staff, this initiative has become an annual event which sets a benchmark for others to follow."
In 2020, we named as "Harrow's Heroes" for our community work during Covid-19.
In 2020, 2019 & 2018, we achieved a Silver in the internationally-renowned RoSPA Health and Safety Awards. In 2016, the nursery was shortlisted as a finalist in the coveted Nursery World Awards.

We spent a Saturday afternoon with my husband and two children at Ms Darshna and Mr Morzaria's setting. This is something that everyone should experience. They were very welcoming, we felt as if we always knew each other. My then 9 months old little girl was very comfortable with Darshna. My then 2,5 year old son had a lot of fun playing with the toys and enjoyed the spacious indoor and outdoor environment. I visited a few nurseries and other childminders but far this is the best. The only reason we decided not to register our daughter with this setting was that we eventually found a nanny. But I would definitely recommend Ms Darshna and her nursery for those who can't find or can't afford a good nanny and want the best care for their children.
Very flexible and Very understanding team. Really like the children’s routine and diet plan. I was initially very nervous when my son started going to the nursery, however its a big relief to see your child being so happy at the little darling!
Strongly recommend everyone to consider this nursery!
I have been sending my two kids(4yr n 1yr) to Darshna since 3 months and they both love to go to her. My little one who always clinged to me got settled very quick and having fun over there. I really appreciate the way Darshna and her team taking care of kids and also make kids to do activities. I am happy that I kept my kids in safe hands.
Very happy with Darshna. A wonderful loving and dedicated lady.. And an excellent cook too! My children love going to her house and they adore her.
Thank you darshna
Both of my children have been under Darshna's care since they were only 7 months old. She has been an amazing carer for my children. Great setting with a lot of importance given to social aspects as well learning through play. Her love for children is heartfelt and my children have been very lucky to have grown up under her care and support.
