At Little Lionhearts Nursery School, no expense is spared to ensure our rooms and facilities are well designed to suit the needs of our children. Our nursery boast full sets of high-quality solid wood furniture from Community Playthings, allowing us to quickly change the layout of the room whenever necessary via their roomscape system. Adapting to needs while providing a refresh of the setting’s environment. Furthermore, our nursery features:
- Large play area with a therapeutic water feature
- All rooms are furnished with modern indoor equipment
- Age appropriate toys, but some with challenges
- Secure access system and CCTV throughout
- Sensory play areas, garden area and playhouses.
We believe for a nursery, just like a smartphone, both hardware and software are interconnected; and without good software, the hardware would have no function. Therefore we put great emphasis on creating a friendly, professional, warm and caring environment. We aim to facilitate a positive relationship between our practitioners and the children in their care by encouraging positive behavior, developing trust, confidence and respect during each of the learning stages.
We allocate a Key Person to every child under our care, this approach enables each child to develop a special relationship with a staff member within the nursery, providing a better sense of security. The Key Person will keep you informed of your child’s progress at the nursery keeping track of the child’s individual learning, development and welfare needs.
At Little Lionhearts Nursery school, the key person for a child/family will normally be the person who welcomes the child/family into the nursery and supports them in settling in. Each key person has a sound knowledge and range of skills to enable them in providing parents with advice and guidance and supporting any concerns with starting nursery or completing transitions from room to room and on to school.
Each key person is paired with a ‘partner’ who will take on the role of the key person during periods of absence such as holidays, to ensure consistent continuity of care for all children.
