Having successfully set up Little Butterflies Childcare Ltd in Spring 2012 Irene and Leanne had a vision to develop their business and create a second setting to serve families in Killingworth and the surrounding areas. Little Cygnets Childcare Ltd, operating within the White Swan Centre, opened in Autumn 2015 offering high quality childcare to under 5's.
All of the staff team at Little Cygnets Childcare are passionate about creating a friendly environment where the children can enjoy playing and busy themselves with plenty of activities, free play and much more.
At Little Cygnets Childcare we provide a safe and stimulating environment in which children feel happy and secure. By providing support, encouragement and praise we help children to make sense of real life situations, develop awareness of themselves and create positive attitudes towards others.
A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in it's own right and it provides the foundation for children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.
We aim to work in partnership with our parents through the structure of our key worker development programme. This programme enables each staff member to monitor carefully the development of children within their care, by completing daily diaries, development record sheets and liaising on a regular basis with parents. This encourages each child to progress to his or her full potential in a warm, secure and caring environment.
We are open from 7:30am until 6:00pm Monday to Friday, 50 weeks per year.
We are closed for two weeks over the Christmas period and all bank holidays.
Fees can be paid by childcare vouchers, cash or standing order.
