Little Doves 


Little Doves is a new 2 Year Old Provision which opened at Whitecote Primary School in January 2015. 

Children who are eligible to attend Little Doves can access the provision from the term after their second birthday. 


The aim of Little Doves nursery is to provide an exciting learning environment for the children in our care. It is a great opportunity for children to begin to interact with others and build up their communication skills.
