“Our mission is to ensure that every child’s needs are met by making every child’s interests, safety and well-being central to everything we do”

Twinkling Toddlers Nursery liaises with a range of external agencies to invoke support based learning for all children including those with EAL, developmental delays as well as a variety of other additional needs, to ensure that all children begin their learning from a secure based to build into a successful future.

We recognize the importance of listening to children, understanding, and meeting their individual needs and that every child is a unique and a competent learner. We believe positive interactions are essential and we should tune in to children’s thinking and let them take lead and direction in their own learning. We support this through encouragement, praise and respectful relationships between staff and the children.
