Here at The Little Lotus Nursery our aim is to become an ever-growing Family. We aim to ensure children see each other as an equal and accept one another into The Little Lotus Family.
The setting has been created to provide a natural, nourishing, stimulating, safe, caring and kind environment for children from different cultures, backgrounds, religions and beliefs. We take part in all celebrations and encourage our families to allow children to join in this also.
We believe this will form a fundamental starting point for your children to develop good values, strong morals and confidence within themselves. By joining The Little Lotus Nursery we have faith that the morals, opportunities and care that staff provide will impact your child in their future. Therefore, we will ensure that only the best information and practice is shared.
We aim to give your child a voice, the resources and environment to express themselves and take a lead on their own learning with support from our practitioners. This is done by providing opportunities such as Loose parts play, Yoga, daily access to the outdoors, access to the community and good role models. Practitioners show how they respect one another and work as a good team which ensures the children can do the same.
Children start off their day by singing The Little Lotus Song which ensures they know they are beautiful, strong, kind and thoughtful. Then throughout the day Yoga is carried out to help children deal with emotions, manage stress through breathing, awareness, meditation and healthy movement and learn how to use their bodies in a healthy way.
Alongside this we aim to support and achieve a fully vegetarian setting.
Health benefits of this are improved moods, lowering the risk of allergies, providing more alkaline foods, improved physical stamina and to have less toxins in the diet.
All staff believe and stand by our nursery moto;
“Know yourself, Love yourself, Trust yourself, Be yourself to learn and grow with Nature”
