At Little Cubs Academy, we believe in the power of the community and we want parents to feel part of their child’s early years’ experience. We take pride in offering a rich and varied programme of family events so parents can benefit from expert views on useful topics, make connections with other parents, and get to know our staff better.
Throughout the year, we hold parent events to mark special occasions like Halloween, Christmas, and pre-school graduation, and we also invite parents to join us for one-off activities like our Father’s Day breakfast or a Teddy Bear’s picnic.
We also offer regular informative parent talks, inviting relevant specialists like child sleep experts, doctors, qualified nutritionists and child psychologists to share their expertise with our community.
