Welcome to Little Beans Weymouth!
Little Beans Weymouth is a purpose-built open plan nursery with a lovely large garden - we have enjoyed our journey of renovating, knocking down walls and creating a space that is in true Little Beans style. Every part of our setting has been designed with our little beans in mind, which includes big windows to let in as much natural light as possible; large open play space filled with natural resources; security cameras on our entrance door; bespoke toilets.
We are a small nurturing nursery with an absolute maximum of 28 children at a time. We pride ourselves on providing the highest standard of care to our little beans and enjoy great communications with our families. Our team are continuously training to improve their professional development and in turn they can be the best teachers possible to ensure the highest standard of learning is happening at Little beans Weymouth every single second.
Are you ready to embark on a journey of joy, learning, and laughter for your little ones? At Little Beans Weymouth, we're dedicated to nurturing young minds, fostering creativity, and providing a safe haven for endless exploration.
We understand that each child is unique and special, with their own set of dreams and aspirations. Our caring and experienced team of early childhood educators is committed to creating a warm and nurturing environment where every child can flourish. From tiny tots to curious toddlers, we offer age-appropriate play opportunities that cater to the developmental needs of each age group.
We are lucky to have a big outdoor space for the little beans to explore and keep doors open to encourage free flow play inside and outside the setting. We believe that connecting with the natural world from an early age can instill a lifelong appreciation for the environment and spark a sense of wonder in young minds.
In our day to day planning we seek to blend imaginative play, hands-on activities, and creative learning methods to make early years education a delightful experience for our young explorers. From discovering things about the world we live in to nurturing artistic or culinary talents, our diverse activities ensure holistic growth, enhancing cognitive, emotional, and social skills.
Our daycare setting boasts bright, spacious play areas filled with an array of educational toys and materials. We encourage imaginative play and provide ample opportunities for group activities, fostering teamwork and friendship among the little ones. With a dedicated focus on creativity, we have arts and crafts corners where young artists can let their imaginations run wild.
We believe that parents are the essential partners in a child's development. We maintain open communication channels, providing regular updates on your child's progress and activities through an online app called Tapestry. We welcome parents to join us for special events and activities, forging a strong community bond within our Little Beans family.
We would love to be part of your child's early years journey. Please do get in touch with our Little Beans Weymouth team for registration enquiries or to book a visit!

Sebrina - Director & Little Beans Teacher (Level 3 Early Years Education)
I have over ten years of experience in the childcare sector and I have five gorgeous kids of my own. I lead a great team and strive to deliver energy and enthusiasm in all that we do at Little Beans. In my view, children should feel safe, secure and happy and be given all the support they need to fulfil their potential. This includes providing children with a broad range of knowledge and skills; quality and consistency of care where staff are supported through ongoing training and development; building positive relationships and treating each child as a unique individual.

I feel that every child is unique and I love being able to support them and play a part of their journey through the Early years. I am kind a kind and caring person and really enjoy arts and crafts, messy play and baking with the children that I work with. I have a horse and a dog and I love spending time with them out and about.
