About the employer
At Little Learners Day Nursery we believe that learning through play is critical to the development of every child. In our warm and welcoming environment we understand that play is primarily an instinctive process through which every child begins to explore, experiment and define their environment. We also work in connection with parents to ensure the correct amount of support for each child is put in place. This is important to the wellbeing and development of each child in the nursery setting and at home.
