Little Beans Fernside recently closed due to proposed residential redevelopment of the premises. We are still operating at our Garland Road site and our amazing Fernside Road team are supporting Garland Road whilst we find new premises.




Breakfast and after school clubs for St.Mary's Catholic Primary School everyday now at our Garland Road site!

All members of the team at Little Beans are committed to undertaking ongoing development and training.
