About the employer

Our ethos at Little Treasures is for both children and staff to be happy and enjoy a safe, welcoming and stimulating environment in which to enrich young minds and lives through a play to learn approach. We treat each child as special and individual; we allow the children's natural curiosity and enthusiasm to instil a real love of learning. We recognise that even the youngest children look, listen and learn most effectively through play activities. We promote confidence, respect for others, good manners, self-awareness and an interest in the environment in which they grow and learn in a natural way through freedom of movement and choice.

Little Treasures is in a semi-rural setting on the outskirts of Worcester. The nursery is within a large period house with several garden areas. We have extended the main house to include additional space for our toddler unit and built a stand-alone preschool situated at the back of the house.
