A truly independent Nursery and Pre-school in Truro, Little Minnows Nursery is situated on Lemon Street.




Our vision is to provide a home from home environment in which children aged 3 months to five years can thrive and grow.
 
Our light and airy rooms, sympathetically decorated and equipped with age appropriate toys and resources, provide a caring, stimulating and nurturing indoor space. We benefit from a large enclosed garden, unusual for a nursery in Truro with a multitude of areas to be explored, whether during child-led or adult-led activities, your little ones will love the sense of freedom and adventure.
 
Healthy snacks and nutritious meals are locally sourced and freshly prepared by our own chef to provide the fuel that young minds and bodies need to develop.
 
You will be kept up to date with your child’s progress through daily diaries published in the EyLog App.
 
We offer full and part time care between the hours of 7:30am and 6:00pm, 51 weeks of the year. Funded places are available for all children who meet the government’s criteria.

Our Ethos

As working parents we know how important it is for parents to have trust that leads to confidence in the care and education their children are receiving. Our ethos is to provide an environment where children can learn through play and use guided discovery to experience the world around them.

Home from Home

Spacious and light with neutral, calm surroundings allow children to feel comfortable and secure leading to a positive experience.

Indoor and Outdoor

We believe just as much time should be spent outdoors as in. This will allow children to explore nature’s own classroom.

Effective Learning

Learning through play with positive reinforcement will help your child to achieve their full potential. All our spaces are carefully designed to be age appropriate.

Food and Nutrition

Developing minds and bodies need wholesome and nutritious food to fuel their curiosity. All our food is locally and ethically sourced and freshly prepared daily by our chef Sarah to provide a healthy and balanced diet.
