We (brother and sister Daniel and Rebecca Harvey) founded Little Cubs Academy in the belief that because we have young children ourselves, it places us in a privileged position to understand what other parents are looking for when choosing the right nursery and pre-school for their own children. As well as sharing a passion for child care and education, what also drives us is working daily with our incredibly dedicated staffing team to provide children with the right environments where they can develop and grow as individuals, feel safe, loved, nurtured and go on to explore the world.
We always had the vision of creating settings that are a hub, where learning is not just for children, but also their parents, creating a supportive and informative community for everyone.
We believe that all staff members no matter what role they perform, are an important and vital part of each nursery and pre-school setting. Without these amazing heroes, who work tirelessly each day we would not be able to provide you and your child with the high standard of care and education every day.
We view our nursery and pre-school staffing teams as both carers and educators, which is why we call them teachers. As far as we are concerned our Head and Deputy Teachers do so much more than ‘manage’, providing a vital role that entails not just teaching themselves, but also leading, guiding and training the staff, while heading up the education, care and safety of your child.
We understand that children learn by watching others: as role models to your children, we make sure we promote respect, empathy, and compassion and work as a team to help every child feel valued and secure.
All of our staff are either qualified or enrolled in apprenticeship schemes. Each of them has gone through a rigorous recruitment procedure that involves both an interview and trial, as well as references and DBS certificates provided.
