Are you looking for a daycare in Braintree?

Look no further than Little Pickles Nursery for a daycare in Braintree. We are a leading, well known daycare centre, offering expert childcare in Halstead. We have many years of experience in daycare services, and offer a range of services to suit you.

Our wonderful journey in childcare began in 1985 when Candy Don, the founder of Little Pickles, created her first nursery within her home, catering for just 8 children per day. Over the years Candy gained a wealth of experience and a wonderful reputation which has got us to where we are today.

Candy’s two daughters Clare and Julie were so inspired by her passion and motivation that they decided to come on board and share this magical experience with her. We are now proud to say we have our own purpose built, interlinking high spec nursery which has a wonderful outdoor free flow garden.

    The Nursery Day

    At Little Pickles Nursery we have a flexible approach to the number of hours and sessions a child attends, however, a minimum of seven hours per week is required. If parents/ carers would like to change their child's day/ hours or sessions then we do require four weeks written notice. We are open Monday - Friday 7.45 am - 6.00 pm, closing only on National Bank Holidays and one week over the Christmas holidays.

    Please note we are an all year nursery so we do not offer term time only care.
