About us

Little Achievers Nursery in the Park, in Skelmersdale, has excellent indoor and outdoor play environments for early years learning, benefiting from strong community links, including with outreach workers and health visitors, to offer parents the complete childcare package.

Additional features include a fabulous Reggio Emilia inspired approach to early years, multi-sensory room, separate play rooms for babies and toddlers, and soft play surfacing. The nursery has pre-school facilities and an outdoor play is even accessible regardless of the weather. The multi-sensory room is a fabulous resource and the children benefit from spending time in this area, it can aid sensory skills and can be used to relax and calm too.

Our outdoor area is amazing, with a very different covered area for all year around use and an outdoor activity room. Outdoors is split into areas to promote different challenges for children from potion making, constructing, tinkering on the piano, wheeled toys to aid spatial awareness, sand a natural garden area for investigating and bug hunting.

Staff are all dedicated to ensuring the children have a safe, secure and stimulating environment that meets the children’s own individual needs and promoting independence whilst allowing them to take risks with adult support. The nursery holds the coveted Millies Mark for excellence in paediatric First Aid (the only nursery in Skelmersdale to hold the award) and the Lancashire STEP into Quality Award.
