Welcome To Little Cubs Academy

At Little Cubs Academy, we help uncover children’s unique strengths and abilities in warm and caring settings that have been carefully designed to help children thrive and reach their full potential. Created by parents with young children themselves, we are a family-owned, independent nursery and preschool group for children from 3 months to 5 years of age. We are open 51 weeks a year, 5 days a week, providing high-quality daycare and early years education that may make you wish you were a child again!

With amazing amenities, such as museums, libraries, farms and beautiful green spaces on the doorsteps of our Greenwich nursery and Forest Hill nursery, we encourage children to be creative, ask questions, and explore the world around them. Play is at the heart of everything we do. We provide the love and care that children need to feel safe, secure and happy because we think that’s the best way to help them learn, make friends, and build magical memories that will last them a lifetime.

But it doesn’t stop there. At Little Cubs Academy we want to create an inclusive community for the whole family, so we build strong, trusted relationships with parents, and offer a fun and varied programme of events and activities that everyone can get involved in.  If you are searching for nurseries in Greenwich or nurseries in Forest Hill, then look no further.

Our mantra at Little Cubs Academy is to treat the children enrolled at our settings with the same love and care as if they are our own.

Depending on your location, we invite you to take a look at our nursery in Greenwich, or our nursery in Forest Hill. We think a visit to one of our nurseries and preschools is the best way for you to truly find out what makes us unique.
