At Little Squirts we recognise the importance of early attachments and encourage positive relationships through our flexible key worker system.

We provide a nurturing environment which allows for plenty of baby led play, ensuring that activities are rotated to encourage the development of preferences and interests.

Throughout the day our babies enjoy lots of sensory exploration which promotes early brain development as well as being great fun. We enjoy getting messy with water, sand and shaving foam as well as various foods, adapting activities to make sure they are age appropriate.

We also provide Heuristic play sessions throughout the week to help our babies learn about how things work through the exploration of natural objects and their properties.

For our younger babies we have a separate garden area for them to explore in safety, however as they get older we do encourage them to join our older children in the main playground. This encourages learning from peers as well as promoting responsibility in our older children.
