Putting big smiles on little faces


At Little Scallywags nursery, we support our children through an inclusive and nurturing ethos in a home from home setting. As highly qualified early years staff we understand the importance of great early education and are aware of how the earliest stage of learning build the foundations for all future learning. Our ethos of developing learning through sensory experiences and active play ensures children are on the right path to becoming confident individuals and successful learners, ready for their next stage in their development.

The nurturing staff foster an ethos of a home from home environment, with lots of sensorial exploration for learning and play. 



Here our children begin to develop a sense of self and independence. Adults support through responsive planning and daily routines, incorporating the child’s voice. 



Play and learning within this room reflects the importance of developing the stepping stones to all future learning. Here we are focused on supporting the children to meet their early developmental milestones and ensure the skills they need for life.
