Information about the school

Little Angels Day Nursery provides childcare for children from ages 2 until they go to school (Reception). We are open during Term time only, Monday to Friday 8.30am to 4.30pm. We set up the Nursery with open-ended resources so that children make their own choices in play and learning and our planning will follow on from their interest. We believe in minimal to no written observations thus ensuring that we spend more quality time with children so that we get to know them and their needs to learning. We are a Setting that ensures our teaching and learning through play provide children with life skills and independence and they can take as long as they need to master these skills. We are very keen on outdoor learning and it's advantages to children's learning and well-being and so have made Forest School a big part of our practice. Keeping with this theme, we have some Nursery Pets which helps with understanding our world and looking after our environment.
