Little Butterflies Nursery

Welcome to our nursery!

Little Butterflies Nursery began their journey in September 2018. We had 8 lovely children and 2 key workers. Since then, we are proud to say, our Nursery has grown and we now offer both morning and afternoon sessions for 2 year old children. This year we welcome Donna to our staff team, and we are pleased that Daphne will still be working with us every morning. We are delighted to welcome ____ children to our setting this year!

At Little Butterflies Nursery we aim to provide a safe, happy and stimulating environment for the children so that they can explore, investigate and learn. We believe that by providing support, praise and encouragement, the children will be able to flourish and reach their full potential. 

To ensure the best possible start for the children we follow a play based approach to learning in line with the Early Years Foundation stage curriculum. By closely observing the interests of our children, our practitioners are able to create a fun, stimulating and meaningful learning environment that sparks curiosity and encourages independence.
