Ofsted registered nursery in Streatham, South London

Written by Daniella Goodman on . Posted in News

Little Linguists Nursery are proud to be an Ofsted registered nursery in Streatham and we received a ‘Good’ rating in the last inspection just two years ago.

The inspectors made some wonderful comments about our bilingual nursery which we would like to share with our newer parents and also potential parents and carers.

Ofsted registered nursery in Streatham – what the inspectors said:

“Children are happy and secure. They form close bonds with staff and others.”

This is so important to our team as we want each and every child that comes to us to look forward to opening that front door and not feel anxious when Mummy or Daddy head off to work – making the day a much better one for their parents, too!

“Transitions between rooms are handled well and help support children’s well-being.”

When children are happy and settled in a nursery, it can be daunting when they are moving up into the next room. We strive to ensure each child feels comfortable when they move up and look forward to making new friends and trying new activities.

“They develop good communication and language skills, in both English and French, as they are encouraged by staff to use both languages in their play and activities.”
Many parents and carers choose our Ofsted registered nursery in Streatham because of the language lessons we provide to all the children who come to us throughout the week.

“The well equipped, open plan rooms provide children with ample space to move and play freely.”
As well as our planned activities, the children spend time playing with the toy and equipment that they wish – allowing them to us their imagination and try new things!

“Children benefit from a wide range of exciting activities that encourage them to explore and investigate.”
Children love to explore their surroundings and the team at Little Linguists Nursery ensures that our children get to do just that, while ensuring they are safe and secure.

Our French Nursery February News

Written by Daniella Goodman on . Posted in News

Messy play with the babies at Little Linguists Nursery - a French nursery in LondonWelcome to Little Linguists Nursery February news – where you can find out what the children of our French nursery in Streatham have been doing during the month!

Pre-school room – making decisions!

This term, our pre-schoolers are continuing to look at “People Who Help Us” and in the month of February, our focus has been on Fire Fighters and any parent who is a Fire Fighter was invited to come in with their uniform on and equipment to give us a demonstration and talk to the children about safety and the dangers.

This month the children have also been encouraged to take part in decision making. For example, they have had the opportunity to say what they think we should include in our class rules, helping them express and share their opinions and what is important to them.

 

Toddler room – celebrating Chinese New Year in our French nursery

This month our theme has been ‘All about me’ where we have looked at ourselves in the mirror and drawn our portraits. We have also learnt the words eye, nose, mouth etc in French. The toddlers have also looked at our peers and staff to identify the similarities and differences we have, such as eye and hair colour, long or short hair etc.

We celebrated Valentine’s Day by having different sensory activities and talked about how we feel and why by using smiley and sad faces.

As a French nursery, our book of the month is ‘T’choupi dans sa maison’ and the English book of the month is ‘How much I love you’.

We celebrated the Chinese New Year by creating a group art work all together to make the zodiac sign of the dog.

 

Babies Room – getting messy

Both the Caterpillars and Ladybird rooms had the theme of ‘Messy Play’ in February. Each room had different messy table activities such as shaving foam, jelly, corn flour, spaghetti which the children explored through touch using their hands, feet or tools. This helped them develop their Communication and Language skills as it stimulates their exploratory impulses. A member of the staff went through the activity step-by-step with them, describing what they were doing and how it felt when they touched the different sensory activities, while encouraging each child to repeat simple descriptive words.

To celebrate Valentine’s Day, the book of the month has been ‘Guess How Much I Love You’.

We have continued to learn and explore the colours in French.

Childcare Tip of the Month

Written by Daniella Goodman on . Posted in News

Welcome to the Little Linguists Tip of the Month!Childcare tip of the month from Little Linguists Nursery in Streatham

The team at our nursery in Streatham know how tough being a parent/carer can be and are always on hand to assist the parents and carers with any challenges they may be having with their young children.

As babies develop into toddlers, they find new ways to test their boundaries and express themselves. So when your toddler gets upset, you might find that they scream, cry or even kick, hit or bite – behaviours that even the calmest guardian may struggle with.

If you can’t find an immediate reason, such as hunger, tiredness or simply the need for a little tender loving care, here are a few things you can try to calm your toddler:

  • create a distraction using something like a book, favourite toy etc;
  • draw their attention to something else happening nearby – perhaps a fire engine/police car driving past, a funny picture on a wall etc;
  • if they’re angry, tell them you know how they feel.

For more information and tips on baby and toddler safety, please visit NSPCC website .

We hope that you find these tips useful. If you have anything you would like our nursery in Streatham to include in the future tips of the month, just let us know!

Our bilingual nursery January news

Children mixing paint - bilingual nursery - Little Linguists Nursery Streatham

Our team and the children have had a fun-packed and busy January already which has included a wide variety of activities for all the children we care for at our bilingual nursery.

Baby Room explorers

In our Baby Room, there has been lots of sensory play by using foam as snow and different winter animals hidden in it for the babies to find. They have also used cotton wool to create mountains and furry polar animals. The animals were then put in coloured ice cubes so the babies could watch them melt and feel that the ice is cold.

The babies have also been taking part in cookery sessions, by putting whipped cream on biscuits and using their senses to taste and smell.

In addition, as we are a bilingual nursery, the youngest members of our nursery have also been learning the colours in French and exploring them further by mixing colours together.

The Toddler Room at our bilingual nursery

The Bumblebee Toddler Room has been a hive of activity as usual, with the children exploring the winter and changes in the weather. They have also been busy learning their primary colours in French and English. For those children who already know them, they have been exploring the different colours further by mixing them together to see what happens.

As we pride ourselves on being a bilingual nursery, in maths, the toddlers have been concentrating on learning their numbers up to 10 in both English and French and those who already know them have been practising counting items, such as blue blocks and green blocks to complement their colours work. Soon, the class will begin to try and identify the written numbers as well as starting to look at words that begin with the letters ‘A’ and ‘B’.

Pre-School fun

So far this year, our Pre-School Room has been looking at “People Who Helps Us”, such as nurses, doctors, fireman and dentists.  The class have also started learning to say the animals in French, such as chat, chien and lapin. They are continuing to work on their phonics and practicing forming the letters using dot line worksheets.

If you are interested in the activities each of our rooms have been getting up to and feel that our bilingual nursery could be the perfect place for your child, please get in touch with Little Linguists Nursery Streatham to find out more about our bilingual nursery!
