At Little Saplings we take the Health of our Staff, Children and Families very seriously. If your child has a persistent cough they need to be seen by a doctor and get a PCR Covid test. Call NHS 111
if your doctor cant help and they will sort immediate appointments. Plus Sandwell has 100's of immediate appointments for PCR tests (even at weekends) available. Dont dose your child up and send them in. Protect your child, your family and those at the nursery and their families.

We have to remind parents School Places are decided by the Local Authority and not the schools. Attending a school Nursery does not Guarantee a place at that school.

In our efforts to help our families and those around us. We would like to thank Asda Queslett Great Barr, for there wonderful donation of essential food. Pictured our own David Duffill collecting the food from Michaela the stores communities chamion. So many families are still on reduced income furlough or have lost their jobs all together, in this pandemic. We had comments like, its the first meat they have had in a very long time. We have been able to prepare it and sit down to a good meal with our household for the first time in a very long while. Plus they now have other essentials that they can make a good meals from.


Each week as part of Fareshare Little Sapling's David Duffill (one of our co owners), collects food that would be skipped by supermarkets. We help not only our families but struggling familes in the community. Today we were able to help families in the Rye Croft area of Walsall as well. Over the last 2 and half years over 4 tonnes of food had been rescued by us to help those in need.
