Our fully qualified staff are trained to the highest standards and are passionate about providing high standards of childcare. We work in partnership with parents to ensure that your child progresses in a happy and structured environment and is prepared for their journey on to school.
Little Angels Childcare provides a safe and caring location where children are encouraged to develop and thrive through our emphasis on subtle learning through play. All our play activities are geared towards the EYFS curriculum. Guided learning through play not only prepares children for school but encourages social skills.
We know there’s many reasons why you’d entrust us with the safe care of your loved ones and we understand the time pressures faced by modern parents. Working together, you can be sure your child is safe, happy & fulfilled with us.
At Little Angels we place a strong emphasis on helping all children reach their individual potential. Our building is accessible for children with disabilities (please call for details) and children from all cultures and backgrounds are welcome. We have dedicated member of staff trained for Special Educational Needs (SENCO) to support children who need extra Help.
We take necessary steps to safeguard and promote the welfare of children. We promote the good health of the children, take necessary steps to prevent the spread of infection and take appropriate action when they are ill. Children’s behavior must be managed effectively and in a manner appropriate for their stage of development and particular individual needs.
Before your child starts the nursery, we ask if you could bring your child in two weeks before you want them to start for familiarisation sessions. This will enable you and your child to be familiar with the staff and the daily activities. A happy environment makes for happy children! Providing exceptional childcare in a safe and stimulating environment, ensuring that your child gets best start in life
We recognise that all children are different and therefore each child is encouraged to develop at their own pace. Our children are nurtured within a play based curriculum which is broad, planned and balanced indoors and outdoors with both adult led and child initiated learning.
We ensure that snacks and meal times are a social time at which children eat together. It provides a fantastic opportunity to promote healthy eating and hygiene practices.
The nursery will provide healthy, balanced and nutritious meals, snacks and drinks. All main meals will include food from the four main food groups (starchy carbohydrates, fruit and vegetables, mild and dairy foods and proteins.) No salt will be added to food and food containing high in salt, e.g. gravy granules, stock cubes, ready made sauces etc. will be used as little as possible. We are also able to reheat any home cooked meal. We consider children’s dietary needs when cooking and preparing meals and make sure these are all met.
Children are given the chance and encouragement to look at different forms of literature and text within their class environment. There will also be enough help around for them to hear and develop different letters and sounds through phonic sessions and games, which all lead to their future reading skills. We will be starting the children off with assisting them to name and learn letters which they will also experience through stories, rhymes, poems and phonics. For this, the children will be given their very own fiction or non-fiction book which they will then be able to take home to share with their friends and family. They will also be given the opportunity to pick a book of their own choice.
As well as Literacy, the children will also be working with numbers, counting, sorting and matching with shape, space and measures. Children will also begin to understand sequencing when it comes to learning days of the week and the months of the year. They will start to see patterns emerge and be able to follow them easier within their local environment. This also includes counting regularly throughout the day for example, having to count their peers in a line at the end of play time. This helps encourage them to use mathematical language regularly through their everyday life. To help evolve their learning process, they will be practicing their skill within number rhymes, stories and games and even during water play and sand play.
We will be implementing Communication with your child whether that be verbally, through actions, gestures or expressions. This vital early skill will contribute and improve throughout your child’s life. We will be extending the children’s vocabulary by asking them to talk openly in front of their peers and adults about any activities they have participated in especially after the weekend or holidays.
We provide a wide range of activities which help your child to learn and develop through play. We have a number of different rooms suited to children of differing ages, all the way from birth to 8 years, where we hold both adult led and child initiated learning activities. Daily activities include: painting, sand and water play, construction, imaginative play, role play, investigative play, stories and songs, counting, shape sorting and outdoor play.
Little Angels Day Nursery uses the practice and guidance from EYFS to plan and provide a range of play activities which help children to progress, learn and develop. We observe how your child progresses and learns and then use these observations to plan the children’s next steps in the learning process.
As your child will be adapting to entering this new chapter in their life, forming relationships is something we aim to encourage throughout their time here. It’s very important with their age group, that the child’s self-esteem and confidence is monitored and reassured in order to help them form relationships with adults, as well as long lasting friendships. We will involve the children in group activities daily and hold circle times at the start and end of each day. This will help inspire and spark their positive, social behavior.
Little Angels Daycare provides a safe and caring location where children are encouraged to develop and thrive. Guided learning through play not only prepares children for school but encourages social skills.
We also make sure that physical development is also involved in the child’s development skills as it’s important to grow and strengthen their motor skills. This includes things for the children to learn how to hold and apply small movements when writing or with scissor techniques. It will also involve big movements for physical activity during indoor or outdoor play where they will be able to exercise and help stay healthy through running or climbing. There will also be a variety of opportunities for the children to be able to explore and experience music, dancing, climbing activities and sand and water play.
We’ve created special spaces, which we call our flower rooms. From our young buttercups growing through to our Sunflowers leaving to start school, our series of rooms help your little ones progress and learn through play as they grow.
“The right to play is a child’s first claim on the community. Play is nature’s training for life. No community can infringe that right without doing deep and enduring harm to the minds and bodies of its citizens”

Our team of trained staff will care for your children and encourage them to participate in a wide range of age appropriate activities that create many opportunities for fun and social interaction. These include:
We believe safeguarding is of utmost importance here at Little Angels – and we aim to promote the highest of standards every day. All employees are DBS checked and monitored, and visitors are asked to bring along photographic identification when they visit. The setting and activities are risk assessed, to ensure that (whilst children are encouraged to engage in some ‘risky play’) that the resources children use are safe.
We value your child’s happiness and well being during their time at Little Angels and we encourage children to see their role in the bigger picture. We encourage children to have their own independence and freedom so they can experience their own reasoning of what brings joy. Their happiness of course has an important part to play within their new, learning environment.
The education we provide your child, will open them up to new knowledge and skills which they will use and need for the rest of their lives. This will include the required education such as literacy, maths and communication but not forgetting other forms of learning such as social knowledge, confidence, creative skills and more!
