We feel immense pleasure in providing a range of activities that emphasize a balance of planned and child initiated learning experiences for the holistic development of every child.
We integrate a variety of planning and assessment strategies, as it is a vital process in extending a child's learning and development. Our approach is friendly, compassionate and we exercise empathy while integrating our varied strategies.
We believe that learning must be 'meaningful and significant ' for every child and so our planning and play experiences are explored through a practical 'hands on' approach.
Every Child is Unique:
We believe that every child is a unique and special person, endowed with an individual dignity, which should be nurtured and developed as one with the body and the mind. The support of a caring and intimate community allows children to develop self-confidence.
By recognizing different temperaments and learning styles; by challenging and encouraging; and by working as a team, our staff will help the children to develop their identity.
Partnership with Parents:
We believe that two-way communication is important for both the nursery program and the family. It is essential to understand the goals each has for the child involved. It is just as important for the child’s development to have the family support the nursery program with enthusiasm as it is for the program to support the child.
Many parents are working and therefore they depend on their child’s pre-school more than ever for quality care, concern, and support for their children.
Little Oxford Nursery and Day Care recognizes and supports every family make-up that the children represent. We take the initiative to contact the parents and arrange for meetings at their convenience. We lay emphasis on the importance of building trust thus establishing confidence in our parents.
We strive to ensure we meet each and every parents’ expectations and every child’s individual needs.
