Our aim is to provide an educational, stimulating, caring, friendly and inclusive environment tailored to each child.
Our staff are very experienced and will plan for, assess and observe individual children.
The adult to child ratio is 1:3 for the 0-2 year olds, 1:4 for the 2-3 year olds and 1:8 for 3-5 year olds. All of our rooms are supervised by an experienced NVQ3-qualified nursery nurse working alongside NVQ2-qualified and trainee staff. A monthly cycle of observation, assessment and planning is carried out in each room. Each month, a different theme is identified, with meaningful activities planned to suit each child’s learning needs.
Every child’s progress is followed by staff performing regular observations and completing summative assessments which are shared with parents. Each child also has scrapbook of their stay at Little Nippers called a Learning Journey; it contains art activities, pictures, observations and information gathered both at home and at nursery and will be given to you when your child leaves.
