I took my little one to have a look around on Thursday and was blown away with how lovely this nursery is going to be. Love the child led ethos, its all about play which is how is should be for little ones. The setting is well laid out and full to the brim with resources. Very excited. The lady showing me around was lovely, very helpful and calming. I am very reassured my little one will b...e well looked after at Little Hubbers.

Business overview

To provide a safe, secure, happy & stimulating environment & to support all children as they explore & learn to reach their full potential. Childrens Nursery - North Shields

Little Hubbers Childrens Day Nursery North Shields 0191 6912565

A child’s first step into nursery is also a first step to independence.

We believe children would thrive best in a fun, caring & enjoyable environment where they should be given first hand real experiences & resources that are stimulating for them to experiment, explore, & learn to be independent.

We value that learning takes place through enhanced play opportunities & that children’s play reflects their wide range of varied interests.

We acknowledge that by having a safe, secure & challenging environment we will be giving our children learning opportunities where they can learn to take risks, develop boundaries, make choices & extend their development.

We recognise the importance of listening to children, understanding, & meeting their individual needs & that every child is a unique & a competent learner.

We believe positive interactions are essential & we should tune in to children’s thinking & let them take lead & direction in their own learning. We support this through encouragement, praise & respectful relationships between staff & the children.

We believe that parent & staff partnership is vital with warm & trusting relationships as they have a lot to learn from each other. This is beneficial to support children’s progress & development, which has a positive impact on children’s learning.

We understand that the diversity of individuals & the communities are important & everyone is valued, children have the right to be treated fairly & be happy.

We believe that all children should be supported to develop a positive sense of themselves and others.

We feel it is also important to work together with the wider multi-professional team & local community so everyone involved in early years can build a secure foundation for care, education & learning & meet the needs of every child.

We are committed to following the Early Years Foundation Stage as it offers a rich & invaluable curriculum in Early Years.

Amazing nursery and amazing staff

I cannot recommend little hubbers and the staff enough. Oliver absolutely loves it. I was very nervous and felt really on edge about Oliver starting nursery so i done a lot of searching to find the perfect one for us. Within little hubbers I found what we were looking for and more. The place is fantastic and the staff put you and your little one at ease right away. They take the kids out on a daily basis so they are never bored and they always have loads to do. Every time I pick Oliver up the staff always take the time to tell me about his day which I love. The security of the place is fantastic so I know he’s safe . Oh And the cleanliness of the nursery is amazing. Thank you so much for making our nursery experience that little bit easier.

Love this new nursery already - staff are so focussed on the children’s development and really caring. They go on loads of outings and give us activity bags to take home. They probably put as much effort and energy in to looking after my little one as I do myself! Definitely recommend
