Welcome to Giggles Nursery (44804447)
Giggles Nursery’s mission is to provide your children with the best. We ensure that our nursery adheres to and meets the highest standards of care and education that help your children develop and reach their full potential. In other words, our mission is to promote a nurturing and stimulating environment that leaves a deep and lasting impact in their future and prepares them for their next educational steps.
Giggles Nursery recognizes that if children are happy, content and well cared for, then they are more likely to progress and fulfill the foundation stage of their development.
At Giggles, we aim to provide:
- A warm and friendly atmosphere with EYFS qualified and trained child care providers
- Safe and hygienic facilities and EYFS learning equipment.
- A variety of age appropriate activities, educational and stimulating toys that support the child’s physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs.
- A support panel to parents and ways of communication to tackle any issue that arises with their children.
- Increased knowledge of their child’s development and individual needs through our developmental assessments.
- Increased knowledge of their child’s health and nutritional needs through the continuous check and observation from our onsite nutritionist and nurses in addition to the regular monthly visit from our doctor.
At Giggles, we follow the Early Years foundation Stage curriculum. This sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from 2 months until 4 years. There are 7 areas of learning development. They are communication and language, physical development, personal, social and emotional development, literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive art and design.
We take the approach that each child is unique with special talents and abilities and an individual learning style. We know that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and believe that all areas of learning and development are equally important and inter connected.
Our nursery offers a safe and caring learning environment which provides mental and emotional health well-being with good communication skills.
We have specialist Physical education teachers and language teachers who work alongside the class teachers. We also offer Quran classes.
We ensure that our learning goals are constantly reviewed to ensure the best for our children.
The EYFS curriculum sets high standards for the learning, development and care of our children.

The children will be introduced to basic Literacy and Mathematics skills using various games and activities.
