"Staff have extremely high expectations of what children can achieve. Staff meticulously plan from highly accurate assessments. Children enjoy the superb activities and experiences available, which helps them to move on to the next stage in their learning exceptionally well. Teaching is highly motivational" Extract taken from our most recent Ofsted Inspection on 5th December 2017.
Littluns Day Care and Pre-School was founded in 2006 and cares for a maximum of 24 children in purpose built rooms within the grounds of an existing family home. Offering a warm, caring home from home environment for little people aged 6months to 5 years, all our rooms offer a bright, welcoming space with a huge range of resources. From soft toys to the latest iMac and iPads, digital learning equipment to an array of dressing up clothes and a home corner with everything you'd find in your kitchen at home - the children are never short of stimulation! With messy play everyday, walks and visits into the community, alongside delivering the EYFS, we offer so much more than our counterparts. Our fantastic outside space encompasses a rustic feel with wonderful mud kitchens, water wall and balance and climbing apparatus for all ages.
The whole team are passionate about their profession & have a natural nurturing ability towards the welfare and safety of each individual child. Our children are cared for in small groups allowing them to thrive through individual attention whilst developing at their own pace - encouraging confidence, independance & self esteem from an early age. We are not a 'tick box' nursery and whilst written observations and paperwork is vital, the child remains the sole focus ensuring their day is full of fun and learning and reaching their individual potential.
Accredited and eligible to accept the EYFE which offers 15 and 30 hours free childcare each week to all eligible 3 and 4 year olds. We also offer limited FEET funded places.
A word from the Proprietor: "As a mum of 3 (25, 24 & 14) I feel I have gained valuable knowledge in most areas of raising a family. From sleep depravation, terrible 2's, adolescence & tantrums to the young men that my 2 elder children have become - plus an awful lot in between! Together with a plentiful team of outstanding staff, who are qualified to a minimum of Level 3 in childcare, our Pre-School is overseen by an Early Years Educator who is qualified to degree level. All staff are trained in paediatric first aid and regularly attend on-going training and workshops to ensure we are aware of new regulations & legislations whilst continuing our professional development. Once you visit our setting you will understand that whilst qualifications are an important part, the passion that all the staff have for childcare is second to none & this is what makes Littluns Day Care so special and sought after, we have an enviable waiting list and urge parents, if looking for good quality care, seek your childcare place sooner rather than later. Recently described as a 'blue line nursery' there is a reason why you would want to put your babies name down for a place as soon as you see the blue line on a pregnancy predictor test!" Our recent Ofsted inspection (Dec 2017) also reflects the quality of care offered here as we achieved 'OUTSTANDING' right across the board. A visit to Littluns will show you just how much care and hard work we put in to ensure that babies and children genuinely have the best time with us through their play, and learning.
All key staff are qualified to at least Level 3 & have a
Paediatric First Aid Certificate
We currently employ 2 apprentices who will qualify April and December 2018 and are regularly assessed within the workplace.
