Nursery Manager

Little Einsteins Perth Nursery is a purpose built setting that caters for children aged 0-14 years. We can cater for 180 children at any one time.
We provide a fun and stimulating environment, which is safe and secure.

We believe that care and education are inseparable and a loving atmosphere fostered by good relationships between home and nursery helps a child feel happy, settled and secure in their life.

Every family is treated as individuals and the needs of each individual child will be catered for. We aim to build strong and effective relationships with families to ensure that all parents/carers are confident that their child is happy, safe, well cared for and stimulated at all times. The care and welfare of the child is of utmost importance during their time at our nursery.

Our main aim is that all children develop as individuals and we make appropriate provision within the curriculum to ensure each child receives the widest possible opportunity to develop their skills and abilities. We look to encourage all aspects of development, supporting and guiding children emotionally, socially, physically and intellectually. We also hope to encourage confidence and independence to help children cope in life and in preparation for the school environment.

The nursery is operated by our senior manager and our team of department managers who ensure the smooth running of the setting at all times. Our Staff are fully qualified Early Years Practitioners who have a vast experience in childcare. They help to make our Nursery a warm, safe and welcoming place for your child.
