Find out more about Kidz Inc
The Little Oaks Nursery was opened in October 1990 by Fareham College and was originally registered for 18 children. The nursery building was a dental clinic before it was converted into a nursery then the college opened another nursery in 1993 called Leonora Nursery.
Kidz Inc was formed in 2002. Christine Bone is the Director. She is a qualified NNEB with 35 years of practical hands on experience of childcare. Chris provides quality childcare in a ‘homely’ environment with a highly motivated, qualified and dedicated childcare team.
In 2007 both nurseries were amalgamated on the exiting Little Oaks site. We now cater for 45 children with ages ranging from 3 months to 5 years.
Kidz Inc Ltd is registered with OFSTED and receives regular inspections as required by the childcare regulators.
In May 2006 we were awarded the Pre-School Learning Alliance (PLA) Accreditation Award. Please see quote below:
