LIGHTHOUSE NURSERY “WE SHOW CHILDREN WHERE TO LOOK BUT NOT WHAT TO SEE“
Lighthouse Nursery is a devoted, family run children’s day nursery, in our day we incorporate our bespoke outdoor learning – our Nature Rangers, taking aspects from Beach and Forest Schools to enhance our wonderful setting. Since opening my nursery in March 2017, we have grown as a company and more importantly, as a family. We eagerly await our Ofsted grading as we are proud of everything we do here at Lighthouse. My team is one big extended family and I am lucky to have so many passionate people, most are Early years degree qualified, and those who aren’t are supported to become all they can be, all my team actively strive for the best for the children and each other. We welcome all children and their families into our extended family and aim to provide a true home from home and we value the input from our families to enhance the children’s learning and development. Taking children at face value, celebrating their achievements, actively learning together in small family groups that are a constant throughout every child’s journey at Lighthouse. At the heart of our nursery is the powerful image of the child. Rather than seeing children as empty vessels that require filling with facts, our Reggio educators see children full of potential, competent and capable of building their own theories.
We have a unique approach to childcare and learning, which is continually evolving alongside our professional development and knowledge, we believe the experiences we provide the children in our care are second to none. Our approach is forever enhanced by the Reggio Approach from Northern Italy, each and every child is at the centre of all we do.
Over the past 9 months we have enhanced each and every child’s learning using their interest and thought provoking activities to make sure they get the very best learning opportunities, here are just a sprinkling of photos through our journey to share with you ❤️
