The Little Shipmates Family was born in 2000, beginning with a 30 place setting in Hythe. Clive and Helen have previously trained and worked in various schools across Hampshire, building a wealth of experience in all aspects of education, from teaching and learning through to management.
Having used nursery provisions for our son, we decided to open Little Shipmates Day Nursery in Hythe. Since then, the business has grown steadily, with the addition of new settings: Sunrise, Starfish, Explorers, Daisy Chain Nursery in Basingstoke and from January 2017 a dedicated 40 place Pre-School in Hythe.
Our mission is to create inspiring environments that children love. We are committed to providing you and your child with the most enjoyable, educating, rewarding and valuable experience possible.
All our nurseries are unique. They reflect and meet the needs of the parents and children who use them. We have multi lingual staff, afterschool and holidays clubs, student and college/university provisions and much more.
Each nursery has experienced, trained staff to help support your child. Our staff hold qualifications in First Aid, Health and Safety and other areas that will help take care of your child. Some of our staff members are also multi-lingual, ensuring your child achieves. Our nurseries come with a guaranteed level of service and commitment.
