There are several features and signs of a great day care which make it the perfect place for your child to stay. A great day care should always do several things to keep all children and parents satisfied.

Little Steps Day Care are passionate about providing the best possible day care for all children and parents. We always aim to leave you fully satisfied with the fantastic support we provide.

Caring Environment

Your day care should always implement a caring environment where children will be constantly supported and cared for. Whilst this also ties into the staff members working at the day care, an environment for the right age group that encourages both academic progress from a young age as well as offering interactive activities is very beneficial.

You want to make sure the environment your children are in always gives you reassurance. From a young age, exploring and staying active is perfect for all young children. They must also be looked after to ensure they are never in danger and are always enjoying themselves when at day care. With a caring but fun environment, this is always achievable.

Educational Aspects

Day care can be the most fun and enjoyable part of a young child’s life. However, it is important to remember that they are being prepared for the early years of primary school at the same time. All educational aspects of a day care should be fun and interactive for children to keep them stimulated.

With the right learning facilities in place and help from the staff members at the day care, you can make sure your children are receiving great support in all aspects of learning from a young age. Our day care aims to help with many aspects of learning, including:

  • Communication & Language
  • Expressive Art & Design
  • Literacy
  • Numeracy
  • Personal, Social & Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Understanding The World

This is something every day care should aim to deliver so all children build up confidence before going to school.

Healthy Eating & Session Times

Healthy eating is integral from a young age. Although you may not see it as a priority, obesity can begin from a young age and carry on into later life, so healthy eating from a young age can be very beneficial. This is something you should always expect your day care to follow through on, even if they do allow time for snacks and breaks throughout the day! Health eating means involving all the food groups:

  • Carbohydrates
  • Diary Proteins
  • Fats
  • Fruit & Vegetables
  • Non-Dairy Proteins

We also make sure that your children stay hydrated throughout the day with plenty of water, with all children having their own cup to maintain hygiene. We use fresh fruit and vegetables as snacks and can also provide lunch and tea for all the children we look after.

You can also view our sample menus to ensure you are happy with the food, snacks and drinks that your children will receive.

Safety, Experience & Training

Some of the most important features of a day care is that the staff looking after your children have great experience and training, as well as giving children complete safety throughout the day. With experienced staff members, they should understand exactly what measures need to be put in place for a day care to be safe.

Additionally, fully trained staff will make sure children are looked after correctly and if any incidents do occur, they can be dealt with effectively.
