Reasons to work at Little Lambs Nursery
Working at Little Lambs
On opening the door, every child receives a warm individual welcome from our happy, friendly team, which we believe creates an enthusiasm for the day ahead.
The Nursery operates with an ethos of learning through play which encourages children to combine both structured learning experiences and their natural inclination to play, explore and question, to develop into young boys and girls, ready for the challenges that growing up will bring.
At Little Lambs Nursery, we provide a happy, warm, stimulating and secure learning environment for our children. Our Nursery teacher and assistants aim to meet the individual needs of our children, giving them the social skills and confidence they need in their formative years and providing them with a sound platform for transition into school life.
Topics and activities change according to the time of year, but a daily routine of learning from the Early Years framework consisting of seven areas of focus: Personal, Social and Emotional Development; Physical Development; Communication and Language; Literacy; Mathematics; Understanding the World and Expressive Arts and Design.
We are lucky enough to have our very own Forest School on-site where children can immerse themselves in our natural surroundings and exercise their imaginations. Our extensive gardens and grounds provide endless opportunities for activities outside in the fresh air and we have ample outdoor toys for the Nursery children to enjoy, including sandpits, water-play equipment and adventure playground.
Our rapidly expanding and outstanding Little Lambs Nursery facility has extended its hours from term-time only to all year round. We offer both full-day and half-day sessions for children from two to four years of age. Our parents have the choice to sign up for term-time only hours or for the year. The Nursery does close briefly between Christmas and New Year.
