The Best for Your Child

Our nurseries in JLT, aim to provide a happy and caring environment to ensure that the best care, support, and education is available to all our children.

Children learn when they are stimulated and when learning is fun, nothing is more fun for a child than discovering something new every day. We encourage parents to enable their child to discover early learning whether it is learning to make friends and being independent or learning to read and write. Early learning often gives children a head-start at school, builds self-confidence and increases motivation and love for future learning.

The staff also believe that integral to the child’s development, he or she must feel safe and secure, by being supported and feeling valued as an individual and that each child should stay healthy, through developing an understanding of healthy eating and the importance of exercise.  All staff are qualified with EYFS experience.

Choosing the right place for your child to make them ready not only for school but also for the world is an important decision. Our goal at Learning Ladder is not merely to transfer specific knowledge, but to arm our children with tools that lead to development of higher ordered thinking.

We invite you to visit either one of our conveniently located branches with your child and see for yourselves our wonderful world of wonder and discovery.

Monthly News – Nurseries in JLT, Cluster V, Cluster Q

“A child who has become master of his acts through long and repeated exercises, and who has been encouraged by the pleasant and interesting activities in which he has been engaged, is a child filled with health and joy and remarkable for his calmness and discipline.” – Maria Montessori, The Discovery of the Child

We are at the end of another term already! Looking back and comparing term 1 to term 2, I feel most grateful in seeing the positive transition everyone at Learning Ladder Nursery, children and staff alike, have made. Understandably, unlike children, the staff found it more challenging to comply with the restrictions of the pandemic in term 1. For instance, little sacrifices like the removal of the kettle in the staff pantry – in line with COVID-compliance – at first seemed easily surmountable in comparison to the devastating economic hardships still ongoing around the world. Nonetheless, it deeply affected staff morale in ways that we are still coming to grips with. The slowly acquired awareness of how we were each uniquely affected with the multiple changes we had to accept, helped us re-learn the meaning of the word ‘value’. What we value most is sometimes what we never think of as valuable till we have lost it.
I am sure the disruption (blessing in disguise) offered by the pandemic made many of you arrive at similar interesting observations in your lives over the last year. Just like our children, as in the quote of Maria Montessori, we too needed time and repetition to ‘master our acts’. We are now much better at ‘doing’ the pandemic and I think we see it in a more positive light as well.

I hope you enjoyed your mother’s day celebrations with the children via zoom. We saw that parent participation, although from distance, made the children very happy. …

“Learning Ladder Nursery was an excellent choice. Sam was only 1 year old when he joined the nursery and was so comfortable from day one. All the staff are so diligent and I can rest easy at work knowing Sam has the best day care.”
