About the employer

We take young children and babies best interests into account which means that we work closely with parents and others involved with the child.

Within Lollipops relationships are influential. They are the basis not only for effective learning, but also for healthy development and emotional wellbeing. Through these positive personal relationships with others children begin to learn that they are valued and appreciated.

Our settings are full of opportunities for children to explore, create and follow their own particular interests, allowing them to grow and thrive. Our settings help to create children's sense of personal identity and sense of self-esteem. It also helps to establish the right sort of atmosphere for children to be able to develop and learn.

Our routines are flexible and individualised as possible, they are an important part of the babies' and young child's day. The more routine parts of the day such as mealtimes and nappy changing all provide valuable opportunities for staff to interact with the children and for the children to develop and learn.
