Our Nursery

What Makes Us Different

It’s hard to bottle what makes us different, but it could be that:

The warmth and natural friendliness that you will experience from all of our staff from the moment you step inside, whether on a visit, a settling in session or just day to day, it’s in our blood.

We are passionate and united in creating something really special, the fact that we all love working with children and believe in what we do helps us come together to create the fantastic high-quality childcare that we have become known for and the reason that parents choose to entrust us with their children time and time again.

We ensure that each child is given the best possible start in life by receiving the highest level of personalised care whilst creating a rich learning environment where every child is given the challenge and support needed to achieve their full potential.

It is our aim to foster an ethos of effective partnerships between families, agencies, schools and the wider community.

Life is all about care and respect for others.  We believe it is vital for children to become part of a social group outside of the home, whilst being at nursery they can make friends with whom they can learn and share, take turns and role model each other.

We feel very strongly that children should respect each other and begin to understand that there will be differences and similarities between one another.  We encourage children to express their feelings in a positive way, and to respect each other’s opinions.

 

What We Offer

At Little Angels nursery the children are fully immersed in explorative play and learning. Our nursery rooms consists of

babies and toddlers : Robins 1 and Robins 2
ages 2-3 years : Swallows
pre-school : Kingfishers

At Little Angels we promote a happy and relaxed free flowing environment between the nursery and the extensive gardens, where we see plenty of local wildlife.

We encourage the natural wonder and curiosity of the children, providing a balance curriculum through child-initiated play and planned adult directed focused times.

Outdoor Exploration

It’s important that all the children have the space to explore their natural environment, playing games, testing their physical limits, and expressing themselves. It’s fantastic for helping children develop more advanced motor skills.

Holistic Learning

Everyday experience is an opportunity for holistic development and learning. Our approach to early development and learning recognises that different aspects are constantly connected in a child’s experience.

Nutritional Menu

All our children are provided with 3 meals a day, plus a healthy morning and afternoon snack, prepared daily from fresh produce and ingredients by our in-house cook. The homemade meals meet all the nutritional requirements for the children.

Local Days Out

It’s important for children to experience different environments, which is why we plan days out in the local community. This gives them the opportunity to see new things, out in the fresh air.

Staff Development

Our nursery practitioner’s professional development is of great importance to us and we pride ourselves on the continuing development of each practitioner by providing a wide range of relevant in-house and external training. Each nursery practitioner is trained in paediatric first aid, safeguarding, food safety and COSHH.

Stay Connected

Keeping our parents and guardians informed of what their Little Angel is up to, is a top priority. We keep in touch via the Family App and provide two photographs per day to show the different activities they have taken part in, as well as updates on nappy changes, toileting and food eaten.  Parents will also receive a monthly call from your childs keyworker.

Freya has benefited in lots of ways. The varied choice of food. The space in which she can play is always varied (Preschool room, outside areas and ball pool room) All the staff at little angels were very friendly and welcoming. Leaving Freya in the morning was always stressful for Freya. But the staff at Little Angels encouraged Freya and very quickly she was happy to ring the doorbell and go straight in with no problems.

The hours of care available enabled us to continue with our full-time jobs. I felt Amber was being well cared for and she was happy, relieving any concerns I had about using nursery care full time. Friendly approachable staff and a good atmosphere. All staff dealt with over the years have been very helpful and friendly, but particular thanks to Claire, Michaela and Sally, who have cared for both Amber and Jasmine over the years and have always been helpful and provided us with good feedback on their development. They are like big friends for the girls and they will miss them very much.

On the 15th August 2011, I tentatively poked my head out of the large pile of sand it had been hiding in, to face the reality of going back to work and having to start the "find a nursery" mission. A disastrous morning looking at nurseries, resulted in tears on the M5 and the thoughts "I cannot leave Amy". I remembered a conversation, at one of the many coffee mornings you attend as a new parent, where a mum recommended Little Angels. One phone call to Linda later and a time was arranged that afternoon to look around. From the moment I stepped into Little Angels, from the attentive welcoming staff, happy children, abundance of space, activities galore, varied menu and the most fabulous garden I knew I had 'found the one'. The cheque book came out there and then, deposit paid and little did I realise that the decision that day shaped the most wonderful early years journey for Amy. Amy started at Little Angels 4-days a week in January 2012, aged 11 months. An inquisitive, social baby I look back smiling at the memory of Amy being on hunger strike for the first few weeks - something that is now hard to believe! The usual 'sobbing on collection' to pull on the heart strings didn't work as we knew Amy was happy and settling in well. Throughout every department Amy has thrived and has had fabulous care from her Key Workers and all staff. The love, care and attention that Amy has received has left us as parents happy in the knowledge she is happy, stimulated and developing social, physical, emotional and educational skills and opportunities to set her up for her future. Little Angels has been an extension of our family life for 3.5 years. We have felt Little Angels has accompanied us on every family holiday with Amy giving us a running commentary on nursery life and what would be happening at various points throughout the day! Every day I count my lucky stars that I made that phone call back in August 2011. We thank each and every one of you for your dedication to the care you give the children and the individual care and support you have given Amy. Not only do we feel extremely lucky to have Amy as our daughter, we feel very fortunate that you have helped shape Amy into the lovable, independent, sensitive, strong minded and humorous little girl that fills our lives with so much joy. Amy has thoroughly enjoyed every minute of her time at Little Angels and we will always remain so grateful to you all.   With Love and Thanks.
