Little Darlings Childcare

Little Darlings is a preschool, childcare located on Porth Way, Newquay, a short walk from Porth Beach. My name is Tania Stringer and I run a friendly, fun, educational, registered childminding service (CRB checked and OFSTED registered). I offer an educational, daycare service for toddlers and babies.

I live with my husband Tom and four year old little boy Leonidas. Before starting Little Darlings I worked in retail. I noticed that the most exciting parts of my working days were spent interacting with the children that came into my store. I took great pleasure in asking them their names and finding out what they had been up to that day. I found that children responded well to me and I believe that this was because I had a genuine interest in what they had to say. On my days off I also loved to volunteer at a local nursery to find out more about the learning processes of young children. I was fascinated by their outlooks, innocence and eagerness to learn when in the right environment and surrounded by the right people. It was here that I really knew what I wanted out of my career and life. I wanted to create a setting that provided an environment that best developed young children. I believe that a child’s early years are essential in shaping their character and morals for a successful and happy life.

Daily Diaries
At Little Darlings Newquay Childcare a daily diary is kept for each child. Notes, observations, dietary information, comments, photos and videos are all part of each child’s preschool daily diary. All of this information can be viewed by you, the parent, online or via printed hard copy.

Children’s Education
As a Newquay Childcare service, one of our main objectives is to produce preschool learning that rivals the best local Nurseries. The Daycare that Little Darlings offers focuses on fun, educational learning. Each child has their own Individual Learning Plans (ILP), Next Step Goals, Learning Journeys (for each of the seven EYFS areas of learning), Progress Statistics, Medium Term Plans and Short Term Plans produced to best accommodate their individual interests to best develop their learning. All of this information, for your child, can be viewed online or via printed hard copy.
