OUR HEARTS ARE HERE TO SERVE

Every child is an artist, the problem is to remain an artist once we grow up.

At Little Village we know and believe that every child learns best through creativity and imagination. We know that every one of our teachers will impact your child and leave a positive mark and we strive for excellence in all we do. Our daily programme is jam-packed with music, movement, creative activities, language enrichment, sensory integration, tactile development, life skills, baking, fantasy play and emotional development. The GOAL of early childhood education should be to activate the child's own natural desire to learn.

OUR DEDICATED TEAM

MEET OUR PROFESSIONAL TEACHERS

It takes a special type of educator to work with children that make up the early childhood age range. Teachers must address learning competencies that support the attainment of basic cognitive, behavioural, social and physical developmental milestones. Patience, creativity, a love for the field and a professional qualification in child development are all important qualities of an early childhood educator and we are blessed to have those teachers all here at Little Village Christian Nursery School.

Our teachers are first aid trained and participate in educational enrichment workshops and conferences throughout the year.

Seahorse class teacher- 3 - 4 year olds

It's so rewarding when one has reached the learning outcomes for the day and all my kiddies are happy and filled with fun. It's a privilege to be a "mommy" away from home to all these children and so special when a past pupil recognizes me. I try my best to inspire these children to be the best they can be, believe in themselves, leave sprinkles and sparkles wherever you go and shine your light for Jesus.
