Promoting British Values…

At Little Leprechauns Day Nursery we value all of our children and families.  We promote mutual respect and are an inclusive setting.  We want children to be independent learners so that they can make their own choices and build and develop strong relationships and friendships with lots of people.

We encourage children to try their best and to follow our simple rules.  All of these things are the foundations for growing in to good citizens and promote the ‘British Values’ of democracy, the rule of the law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance.
