Our Mission Statement:

Mission Statement – We are a small, independent, family ran nursery. Every child at Leaping Lambs is cared for, cherished and nurtured to their individual needs. Staff are part of a close knit team who are passionate about encouraging children to develop at their own pace using a variety of learning activities, building on their natural exploring instincts.

We encourage children’s development through careful observation and regular assessments to plan our curriculum.

Our location really helps children’s learning. We have a huge outdoor area which we fully utilise to encourage children curiosity. We keep animals, tend an allotment and take a lot of our inside learning outside, helping children’s development immensely.

Children are at the heart of all we do here at Leaping Lambs and staff find it truly marvellous watching the children they care for develop.

Recording your childs progress

Here at Leaping Lambs Nursery we use an on line system to record your child’s daily routine, learning journeys and next steps.  This system uses the same security as online banking and therefore is VERY safe!

We use an online learning journey called tapestry to record your child’s progress.

You, as parents can access your child’s progress at work, on the train or at home with your unique passwords and can see what your child is doing the moment it is updated here at nursery.  It is a great time saving tool for our nursery nurses so more time is spent with the children than on paperwork!  A winner for all!!  If however you have any concerns regarding this or do not wish your child to be included in this please just speak with the manager.
