✨LOOKING FOR A FRESH START OR A NEW CHALLENGE?✨
✨If you have previous experience working in childcare and left the industry for whatever reason, we are the reason to get back into it. We pay over the minimum wage and strongly believe in a work life balance, offering full and part time hours, with an option of reduced hours during school holidays.✨
✨Little Deers prides itself on being a dramatically different nursery, where caring relationships, the children’s needs, interests and making childhood memories are valued more than tick boxes, charts, and adult led activities. We believe that there is no need for excessive paperwork, we spend more time having fun and adventures with the children whilst creating long lasting memories in a safe learning environment.✨
✨Our emphasis is on life readiness rather than school readiness, giving children autonomy to be independent, make decisions and take managed risks. We believe in capturing children’s natural awe and wonder to spark their curiosity to promote a lifelong love of learning. Extensive or up to date experience is not necessary as refresher training can be given, what matters is the personality and the type of person you are.✨

Little Deers Day Nursery is a small village setting registered for 26 children. We have both indoor and outdoor play areas with lots of learning opportunities for babies and children from 3 months to school age. We are open 50 weeks a year, from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. We close for bank holidays and 2 weeks over the Christmas Holidays.
Little Deers is a committee run nursery and a registered charity. We are set in an idyllic, tranquil location, well away from busy roads with our own car park. We are based in the picturesque village of Burley, in the beautiful New Forest surrounded by trees, fields and New Forest ponies.
We are not just about high quality childcare and education, making childhood memories is just as important to our team. Our children love hot chocolate and cookies in the forest, toasting marshmallows over the camp fire, jumping in muddy puddles, growing vegetables, reading stories, getting messy, laughing and having fun, to name but a few.
