At the Lighthouse, we embrace and promote the values of our Christian faith by imparting a loving, happy, playful and caring atmosphere. We teach our children to respect differences and all children are welcome and encouraged to be the best that they can be.
Children learn more in the first five years of their lives than at any other time. We recognise that the right care mixed with love, guidance, equality of opportunity, a high standard of early years development, learning, good manners and self-discipline are the basis for developing the whole child.
We believe that caring for children at this tender age is the most important job that anyone can do as they are the building blocks for the future. We aim to provide a safe, caring and fun active learning environment for children of all age groups where they will flourish and develop a love of learning. We challenge our children today, to be the best that they can be and grow towards excelling and succeeding for tomorrow.
We create a home from home setting, with a strong family ethos that facilitates your child’s learning & curiosity to ensure that every child is valued and appreciated.
We are an enthusiastic highly qualified family orientated team who strongly believe that the whole family play an integral part in raising and developing children to be the best of their ability.
The Lighthouse Nursery provides each child with an affectionate, supportive and enjoyable start to their nursery life. We listen carefully to each child’s voice and take on board their views and interests. We strive to provide our children with a happy, fun, secure and nurturing play and learning environment where children thrive as creative thinkers under our special care.
We understand the importance of early years education in supporting a child’s development, and the special tender care and understanding it takes to raise happy resilient, confident children. We do not take lightly the trust and confidence placed in us by all our families.
Our experienced, highly qualified, kind and caring dedicated staff are committed to ensuring every day is filled with amazing opportunities to spark the awe and wonder in a child to learn and explore the world around them. By recognising each child’s individual needs, we are able to provide tailored learning opportunities in a fun and caring way, supporting the growth of your child to become confident and resilient children and giving them the confidence and skills, they need to ensure they are school ready. Our resources and activities promote learning and development and challenge children at age appropriate levels. As a result, children make excellent progress throughout their time at the Lighthouse Nursery.
Pastoral care extends beyond the families to the staff who are good family role models who enjoy good work life balance with flexible working patterns in a fun working environment that promotes cordial family relationships.
