He always displays sheer excitement in anticipation of his visits to Little Sponges. As a parent, I have a great sense of assurance that Elijah has been blessed.”

I am extremely happy with the care and encouragement both my boys have received at Little Sponges. Nicole and her team provide a very warm, secure and nurturing environment for the children. I have never come across an early years environment that comes close and will always be grateful for the great start Tom and Fin have had there. A very special place.

“Little Sponges is a loving, safe, secure environment that is the ideal start to nursery. It is like dropping your child off with your favourite aunt. It is not day-care.”

(Niloufar's mother)

My daughter has recently started at Little Sponges and from her first class, she loved it! I am sure this is because of the excellent teachers, the warm, cheerful and caring atmosphere and the range of activities she can participate in. We look forward to watching Sophie grow and progress at Little Sponges.

“This is our second year at Little Sponges and my daughters love this nursery very much. They feel confident and relaxed here. Little Sponges is a thoughtful and enriching learning environment. The children are kept occupied and engaged. All staff is qualified and really enjoys the company of children. Little Sponges is a warm and welcoming place filled with loving teachers, happy kids and lots of opportunities for learning and play. I would
recommend Little Sponges to all my friends. I really enjoy looking at the photos of my daughters and reading their teachers’ comments on the Parent Site of ‘My Montessori Child’.”

(Sophia's and Victoria's mother)


Starting nursery for the first time can be a very anxious time for both parent and child - we were no different. The staff at Little Sponges is acutely aware of this and spent a lot of time with our son, finding out what he likes, what interests him and took things at his own pace. They always reassured me of how things were going and made suggestions for subsequent sessions as to how we might make him more comfortable. I am so confident with my son being at Little Sponges and have no hesitation in recommending their calm and nurturing environment.”


“Dylan has thrived since the moment he arrived at Little Sponges. As a parent, it is extremely comforting to know that your child is happy and secure in a caring, nurturing, stimulating and fun environment. Nicole and her team are highly skilled at understanding and responding to the individual personalities and needs of each child. Dylan’s self-confidence and social skills have flourished during his time there.”

(Dylan's mother)


Our children love going to Little Sponges. It sounds so simple but that’s the thing, it isn’t.

We are really happy with Little Sponges because Edgar is always willing to go to Little Sponges and enjoys the time there. He is exploring, learning new skills with his other little friends. He is also getting a lot of support from Nicole, Simone and Clodagh. As a parent, we appreciate the feedback received and how committed and close they are.

Little Sponges is a lovely introduction to early education. The homely environment and small class size is just what we were looking for. Thank you!
