About the employer

Little Angels is a nurturing and safe environment for children from 6mnths – 5yrs to grow, explore and flourish in the world. This nursery have two separate buildings; the Baby Room which accommodates children 6mnths-2yrs and the Pre-school Room which accommodates children 2yrs – 5yrs. Little Angels are also very lucky to have a wonderful outdoor ‘garden’ space for the children which includes a sand/water play area, colourful murals and also plenty of ‘loose parts resources’ to encourage imaginative play (e.g. making a train with crates, tyres and tubes). In addition to the outdoor space, the children also benefit from a conservatory room which can be used for all-year-round and all-weather play. They have recently turned this space into a ‘sensory room’ which all the children highly enjoy. The pre-school children also use it to do yoga classes and the staff hold parties there for them on special occasions (e.g. Halloween, Christmas etc)
