Welcome to Little Leprechauns

Little Leprechauns, based in the centre of Chesterfield, offers quality care and education which is exciting, motivating and challenging.

We believe parents/carers are the most enduring educators for their child and that by working in partnership with you we can encourage each child to develop and progress.

We promote the holistic development of the child by encouraging them to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding. We recognise that play underpins learning for young children and practitioners use a child centred approach to provide and support a variety of appropriate learning opportunities, which meet the diverse needs of babies and young children.

Our planning is based upon the observations and interests of children, which allows us to respond to children’s actions and events and sustain a successful learning environment.

Warm & Caring Relationships

A friendly atmosphere is created within our nursery environment, based on warm and caring relationships between our nursery staff and the children in their care. Babies are encouraged to communicate, and their attempts at conversation are valued to ensure they receive an affirming experience, encouraging development, confidence and security.

Our nursery environments also support social interaction, including role play, den making, and small group activities, encouraging children to play, talk and learn together. Our nursery staff all act as role models within the setting, and recognise that children lead by example and are constantly learning through observation. Common courtesy, mutual respect and patience are demonstrated at all times within the Nursery.

Key Person for each Child

Your child is allocated a ‘Key Person’ within their room, who is responsible for their well being, ensuring your child feels secure and cherished while they are away from home. Your child’s Key Person will liaise with you at the end of each day, keeping you informed of your child’s experiences at nursery and ensuring you don’t have to miss out on any aspect of your child’s day.
