About us

Aims and Objectives

As mothers ourselves, we realize that the first few years of a child's life are not only the most precious, but the most critical, providing the essential foundations for healthy development.

That is why at Juniors, we do our absolute best to ensure a safe, caring and healthy environment so that they may develop their abilities, confidence and individuality. We recognize that every child is a unique individual and has the abilities and skills to become a competent learner and establish relationships.

The implementation of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum (EYFS) at Juniors Nursery allows us to foster an environment that will empower the children with techniques which will enable them to participate with confidence within the activities and daily routines at nursery and also in the world around them.
