Quality Childcare In and Around Peterborough & Boston

Since opening our first location back in 2003 – Little Stars Day Nursery in Peterborough – we’ve expanded to operate a further 12 nurseries in Peterborough, and 2 in the Boston area. With 14 fantastic settings to choose from, we’re the city’s largest childcare provider.

Why have we been so successful? Because we always put your child first: we work hard to deliver childcare at an affordable price which prepares them for their future in education and life as a whole. Our mission is to create a culture and environment where children feel able to explore, investigate and experience a taste of what life is all about, laying the foundations for them to achieve their full potential in school.

Our clean, modern and joyfully-furnished facilities allow youngsters’ imaginations to run wild, encouraging exploration and discovery inside and out while ensuring their safety at all times. If you need quality day care in Peterborough, see what we offer.
