About us

About Little Cygnets Childcare Ltd

Little Butterflies Childcare Ltd was created by Irene & Leanne in February 2012 to serve families within the North Tyneside Borough.

All of the staff team at Little Butterflies work hard to create a friendly environment where the children can enjoy playing and busy themselves with plenty of activities, free play and much more.

At Little Butterflies 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 on it's own right and it provides the foundation for children to make the most of their abilities and talents as they grow up.

Our vision

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.
