Training and Development
We believe that highly trained individuals who want to learn will promote a culture where by children will want to learn. All staff will have the right to develop and train further to meet their own personal development potential.
The overall approach of our setting is to provide a happy and caring enviroment that is accesible and inviting to all children and their families within the local community. With over 20 years continuing success, we are proud to remain a much respected and popular choice amongst parents.
Safeguarding and Child Protection
Little Learners is committed to building a 'culture of safety' in which children are protected from abuse and harm in all areas of its service delivery. We will promote awareness of child abuse issues throughout our training and learning programmes for adults. We will respond promptly and appropriately to all incidents or concerns of abuse. We will work with statutory agencies in accordance with the procedures that are sent down in "What to do if you are worried a child is being abused" (HMG 2006).
Aims of Little Learners
It is recognised that children with special Education Needs (SEN) are more likely to benefit and develop through attending a setting used by all children. Little Learners accepts children regardless of ethnic background or disabilities. We are aware that should a child with SEN join our setting, particular attention will need to be given to their physical and environmental requirements, staff/child ratios and specific training. Close consultation with parents will be provided to ensure we can provide the best care for your child.
