James Morris - Three Little Birds co-founder

James Morris

Joint CEO

James believes a secure foundation is essential to the development of children in their early years and that a combination of happiness, wellbeing, education and knowledge can give little people the best start in life.

As a father himself to a teenage son, James understands the importance of quality education and childcare, and this is why Three Little Birds’ nurseries are designed to be an extension of parents’ homes – offering a safe happy and inspiring environment to support families through their busy and challenging lives.

James extends The Three Little Birds mantra of happiness, wellbeing, education and knowledge to his wonderful family of staff who do a grand job of delivering amazing, creative childcare every day.

He is renowned for telling ‘dad jokes daily which everyone finds hilarious (of course!)

“Why did the jelly bean go to school..? Because it wanted to be a smarty..!”
