Our aim at The Little Sweethearts is to offer flexible, high quality care and education for children based on the Montessori philosophy and Forest School approach, alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS) in a welcoming, calm and caring environment where children are able to play and learn at their own pace, making discoveries and choices for themselves along the way. In doing this, it is our aim to provide a nurturing environment that facilitates a child's learning and development, enabling them to grow in confidence, self-esteem and develop their own personality within a framework of good appropriate expectation.

Our environment is open and welcoming to all. It is rich in opportunities that reflect the world today as well as being appropriately stimulating and safe, so as to encourage fun and experimentation with a wide range of materials inside and outdoors.

We understand that parents are children's primary carers and acknowledge that only by working in partnership with parents throughout the child's time with us, can we fully understand the need of each individual child. We view communication with the children, their families and staff throughout the setting as a vital tool and will aid the process of communication in any way necessary for the needs of the children in our care.

Our team are experienced and excellent role models for the children in our care. They seek to develop their personal skills and knowledge so that they are always best placed to identify the needs of the individual child.
