Little Climbers Nursery


The welfare of every child in our care is our upmost priority. We understand that children can be abused physically (including Female Genital Mutilation), emotionally, psychologically and through neglect.

Little Climbers has a trained Safeguarding Office who is duty bound to report any signs of abuse to the relevant authorities. Please see the final page for details.

Mobile phones are not allowed in the nursery and parental consent is required at the point on enrolment for any photography. Photographs are taken on the nursery’s camera and are used to evidence each child’s development.
