Healthy Eating

Home cooked food made fresh everyday using the best local ingredients

All food is prepared from fresh every day in each nursery. Healthy eating is an important part of our philosophy. We employ dedicated cooks to prepare nutritious and balanced menus for all babies and children throughout the week. All meals are freshly prepared each day using a variety of fresh ingredients.

Fresh fruit and drinks are always available. 

Meal times are a social occasion where staff and children enjoy their breakfast, lunch and tea together in a relaxed environment. Older children are encouraged to develop good manners, serve themselves and pour their own drinks.

All meat is sourced from Mackens’ an award winning butchers in Chiswick.  All their meat is Free Range, naturally fed, and outdoor reared. Their beef is Aberdeen Angus Beef. All eggs are Free Range

Fresh Organic Fruit is given twice a day morning and afternoon, and changes depending on what is in season and is supplied by Abel & Cole. Tinned fruit is in natural juice and Beans are low salt sugar variety.

A vegetarian alternative is on offer each day.

We try to use seasonal fruit and vegetables wherever possible.

We are a nut free nursery and are able to cater for specific dietary needs.

A selection of seasonal vegetable and fruit puree is made fresh on site a for our babies.

Starting Nursery


What to expect - and how to prepare - when your child starts nursery


The Little People of Willow Vale nursery is so friendly and welcoming. My son is now 3 years old and has been attending for the last 18 months. He has benefitted so much from his sessions at the nursery in terms of his language development, social skills and learning good routines. All the ladies who look after the children are so caring and nurturing, they really get to know the children well and make them feel loved and supported.

My son is 16 months and has been in the nursery for 10 months now.
Amazing and caring staff. They get to really know all the babies and adapt to their specific requirements and personalities. The babies do many different activities and go outside to the garden or park every day. They get to learn a lot. Parents are informed daily through an app on what the babies have eaten, the sleeping times and activities the babies have done through the day which is really nice.

Deeply human and genuinely caring nursery staff.

I feel rest assured every day that my girl is taken good care of. While Little People of Fulham may seem a bit small, the teachers more than make up for it and the outdoor area is super nice.

I'm amazed by my 3-year-old daughter telling me about all the bones in the human body, continents, seasons, numbers, showing me her ballet and yoga skills and talking to me in Spanish.

I'm very happy my little one goes to Little People Nursery.

We love Little People of Fulham! The practitioners are all kind and warm and our 11 month old daughter loves spending the day with them. The nursery is well managed and has great facilities. We love getting regular updates from the practitioners that let us know what our daughter has been doing, whether she has slept and what she has had for lunch. The nursery organises well thought out programmes of activity and sends excellent communications and newsletters. We are so glad that our daughter goes to this nursery!
