Little Keys Ethos & Values

Dora the Explorer

We understand that your child attending a nursery is a big step and we take the greatest responsibility in ensuring children are happy, nurtured and engaged, and that carers and parents feel confident, happy and heard by us. Our ethos is a commitment to ensure the highest standards of care, education and play are met.

Our Ethos

We offer a safe, happy place where everyone is known and valued as an individual child, and where different needs and beliefs are acknowledged and met.

We encourage each child to be independent and develop a sense of respect for themselves and others.

We provide a stimulating and challenging range of activities that will engage children and develop their curiosity and                    enjoyment in learning.

We further develop positive attitudes towards things that will support them through life and the beginning of their school career.

We develop children’s confidence in not only themselves but within their community, family and friendship groups.


We value and incorporate British values.

Our Values


We are passionate about providing outstanding Early Years care and Education, treating each child as an individual and supporting them through the many stages of growing up and preparing for school. We thrive on fun learning and aiding developing of each child to their potential.




We are customer focused, providing excellent parent-care as well as childcare and we never forget that parents have a voice and a choice.




We work together as a team and treat our colleagues as we wish to be treated. Our staff understand that what we get out of our careers is directly related to what we put in. We take pride in everything we do and have fun along the way with the children.
