Little Oaks - Employer

We, and everyone involved at Little Oaks are committed and enthusiastic educators of young children. We believe children to be curious, independent, fascinated, capable and creative individuals with a huge amount to offer the world. The formative early years lay the foundations of future learning in many areas of human experience. We believe young children have the ability to reach powerful levels of creative learning when their natural inquisitiveness is nurtured. This natural approach fosters self-respect and confidence in their ability to work things out for themselves. We work with the premise that childhood is a time to explore, create and be joyful.
