Ethos of Little Me Nursery

Raising a child is one of the most wonderful and fulfilling experiences a person can have. Children bring joy, laughter and love into our lives. The job is also one of great responsibility and can be quite nerve wracking at times. Parents always seek the best for their children and each parent must find his or her own individual way of caring for their child, as each child is unique and has very different requirements.

 

At Little Me Nursery we take the role of primary carer whilst the child is in our care and we believe strongly in building firm, clear foundations in early childhood from which the child can develop and grow, making sure we address his or her unique needs and abilities. Every decision we make regarding their care is based on what is good for them, rather than what society dictates is normal or easier for the adult. We make every effort to understand what it is that really helps your child to grow in the best possible way, hoping that the end result will be a happy and balanced individual.

 

Rhythm and Simplicity

Babies and children thrive on rhythm and simplicity. It gives them a sense of security and dependability, both very important aspects of growing healthily and developing a sure sense of self. Getting up at the same time every morning, going through the same morning breakfast routine, having patterns and activities they can rely on happening in the same way at the same time every day establish a firm foundation upon which the child can stand.

 

At Little Me we already have established routines in place. Our meals and snacks are always at the same time every day, as are our activity and free play/child initiated times. Having said that, nothing is cast in stone and we can be flexible and spontaneous when we need to be, for example, if the weather is nice we may decide to pack up a picnic and take the children to the park for tea, or if it snows, go out into the garden first thing to build a snowman.
