About the employer

At Little Lamps Nursery we recognise that children’s all-round growth and development requires the careful construction of a learning programme and environment which respects children as individuals and fulfills the needs of the ‘whole child’. Therefore, our passionate teachers and practitioners skillfully plan for children as individuals through varied teaching methods and programmes. The foundation of our curriculum has been set by the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) Statutory Framework. Our unique Learning Programme aims to challenge children’s thinking and allows children to reach their full potential. Our Learning Programme incorporates Mathematics, Literacy, Outdoor Play Facilities, Indoor Gym, Allocated Multi-Sensory Room. We begin our day by exploring the prepared environment and encourage them to explore. We provide them with independent access to resources. This enables children to gain confidence, independence, and a sense of themselves allowing them to become self-motivated to learn. We move on to promoting courteous social skills for toddlers, reinforcing positive behaviours, and supporting them to manage their feelings and communicate their needs. Children are later prepared for school through a more adult-led style of teaching.
