New childcare nursery opens in Southmoor, near Abingdon

Families in Southmoor, Abingdon, are to benefit from the opening of a new children’s nursery, run by the Little Angels Childcare Group.

Southmoor Little Angels – which opened today, Tuesday 7 May – will provide year round, extended day childcare for children from six months to four years of age. 

Government funded places will also be available, with a range of options including term time only attendance.

Southmoor Little Angels will use a former children’s centre building, which has been  refurbished with the help of a £35,000 grant from Oxfordshire County Council. 

Councillor John Howson, Oxfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Children, Education and Young People’s Services, said: “The new nursery in Southmoor will provide a safe and stimulating environment for young children, delivered by an experienced Oxfordshire childcare provider.

“I am very proud of this latest nursery project, part of Oxfordshire County Council’s ongoing commitment to provide the very best start for every child in the county.”

Kaye Merriman, Director of Little Angels Childcare Group, said: “We are thrilled to announce the launch of our brand new nursery in Southmoor, providing for the educational and developmental needs of young children.

“With a focus on providing a nurturing and enriching environment, we are committed to offering high-quality inclusive education and care that fosters a love for learning.”
