Child-Centered Learning: Guided by Curiosity and Passion
At Little Berries, we believe in following the children's interests, ideas, passions, and fascinations. We embrace child-centered learning, allowing their curiosity to lead us through the Early Years Foundation Stage. Our dedicated staff create an environment that encourages exploration and discovery, enabling children to develop a lifelong love for learning.
Nurturing Development: Building Confidence and Independence
Our primary goal is to nurture each child's growth and development. Through our carefully planned activities and engaging curriculum, we promote the building of confidence and independence. Our dedicated team supports children in acquiring essential life skills, fostering their social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development.
Enriching Outdoor Experiences: Embracing Nature
Little Berries values the importance of outdoor learning experiences. All children have the opportunity to participate in Fundamentals and Forest School activities at least once a week. Our inspiring outdoor area provides a safe and stimulating space for children to explore and connect with nature. Through free-flow access to the outdoor learning environment, we encourage a sense of wonder and promote a deep appreciation for the natural world.
