Our Team

Little Shipmates has over 20 staff members experienced in account management, maintenance as well as childcare. All of our team are always on hand to assist you or your child with anything you may need. Developing a relationship with the parents as well as the children is an area that all nursery staff should focus on.

We believe that it’s not just about having the necessary qualifications. A nursery staff member also needs to possess important qualities such as being sensitive and understanding. All of our team takes a pragmatic approach to helping children thrive and develop before they make their journey to school.
