Welcome to Little Butterflies Nursery!
We are a family owned day care licensed from the Family Development Department at the Ministry of Social Affairs for children from 12 m to 3+ years old.
We are a team of staff who are passionate about what we do, and strive for perfection in everything we do.
We are a team who enjoy helping your child achieve his best potential through our organized yet flexible curriculum, which is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage.
We have designed this handbook for you to get a full understanding of how we go about achieving that, in addition to our policies and procedures that help us provide your child with the best care. So please read it carefully and do get back to us for any clarifications or queries you might have.
At Little Butterflies Nursery, we believe that the parents have the best knowledge of their child and that is why we value having a close relationship with you to help him achieve his best potential.
Under our care, your child will develop positive self-esteem, confidence, curiosity, creative expression and respect for his/ her family, peers and himself through our child-focused planned activities and experiences in a safe and stimulating, caring and challenging environment. We will encourage your child to develop at his own pace in our loving and caring atmosphere.
Because we understand that every child has different needs, we designed a flexible daily timetable to develop his needs and interest in individual and group settings.
Our care is available for ages 12 months to 3+ years.
Our care is available from 7:00 am till 2:30 pm from Sunday till Thursday. Late pick-ups (up to 3:30 pm) can be arranged at an additional fee. Please contact the management directly to make the necessary arrangements.
We believe that we are working side by side with the parents to achieve each child’s best potential. That is why, communication is a continuous process and we urge you to be as transparent with us, as we are with you.
We will send back with your child a daily sheet outlining your child’s activities throughout the day, in addition to a weekly summary of activities.
Should you have any sensitive matters to discuss, please do contact the management and set an appointment.
You can visit Little Butterflies whenever you wish; we have an open door policy. You can pop in and check on your child, or you can call our Receptionist to check on how your child is doing.
