We aim to be the best.
Our mission is to provide a welcoming environment that encourages children to develop the skills that they will need in later life.
Schools do a great job when it comes to teaching but life skills are rarely concentrated on. We aim to bridge that gap, fostering leadership and entrepreneurial spirit.
Above all we want to ensure that our children have the best possible start in life and when the time comes that they are ready to move on to school, as well rounded individuals with all the attributes needed in order that they may thrive.
“We simply wanted our children to have the best possible start they could in life.
20 years ago that aim led us to open Little Acorns and I am now so very proud that we have taken the next step and become Leap and Learn.
Providing innovative and exciting childcare in an environment that is designed to offer opportunities to develop, play and learn, we believe we are ideally placed to become one of the leading names in the industry.
Our staff love the job they do, display passion and enthusiasm and above all else have an absolute commitment to our children.
We are different and it is that difference that stands us out from the crowd. As a parent you can know that when you leave your child in our care they will be happy, nurtured and their individuality will be encouraged and respected”
Sally Gedny, Co-Founder and Managing Director

“For me Leap and Learn has to be the best. The best nursery, the best breakfast club, the best afterschool club and the best holiday care available.
As a father I demand the best childcare for my son and so for me it is of paramount importance that this is what we provide to our families.
Along with Sally I am very proud of the way our staff have risen to the challenge of providing a service that is second to none.
Our children deserve the best care and education available and we are determined to provide it.”
