Learning through experience

Here at Sticky Fingers we believe in inclusion and diversity, acknowledging that every child is unique, allowing each child as an individual to learn and develop through play and self-discovery.

We strive to offer an enabling environment, enriching our children’s lives, promoting good self-esteem and therefore a good disposition for learning.

We work closely with parents as they know their child best and are their child’s most enduring educator.

We have good relationships with neighbouring schools and nurseries ensuring smooth transitions.

Sticky Fingers aims to be a happy, friendly and safe environment where our children grow to be confident, happy and secure individuals.

Sticky Fingers promotes Independence and Well Being allowing our children to reach their full potential
