Little Bear’s on Wanstead Green

Little Bear’s On Wanstead Green was the first member of the Little Bear’s family and opened in 2005.  The home-like setting is conveniently located next to Wanstead Tube Station, and features a large, well equipped garden.

As in all of our nurseries, our aim is to provide a warm, safe and stimulating environment with all the comfort features of home.

We believe that all of our children deserve a little freedom in their play and as such we have a large garden with a variety of play areas. A shaded space laid to Astro Turf, and protected to a fall height of 1.5 meters, we offer a safe space for your children to explore and grow.

All meals are prepared by Zebedees™ who specialise in providing delicious, nutritious meals for early years children, using fresh and seasonal ingredients that can also cater for children with special dietary requirements.

We have attained the highest Food Hygiene standards since opening.

Independently assessed by Ofsted as “Good”. Rated 9.9 out of 10 by daynuresries.co.uk and
winner of their Top 20 London Award.

Little Bear’s On Wanstead Green underwent a programme of renovation in the Summer of 2020, giving the setting a fresh new look, upgraded furniture and special finishing touches.

We’re also pleased to confirm that Wanstead Green was awarded the Millies Mark, an endorsement of childcare providers who go above and beyond for child safety.

What our parents say...

“Noelle and I would like to put on record our thanks for all your help and flexibility in allowing us book Kieran in for extra days and a special word of thanks to his keyworker Maryam and before her Meredith.  He really is a happy little boy and that is in no little part to the love and warmth he has received since he arrived at Little Bears.”
