We believe children should spend every day feeling safe and loved, often smiling, always significant and never missing the opportunity to develop to their full potential. Our mission is to create a beautiful, nurturing, learning environment in which your child can develop and grow. We provide a friendly, inclusive atmosphere in which our children are happy, engaged and communicative; where safety is paramount, and our qualified staff are valued, calm and approachable. We seek to cultivate good behaviour and cooperation amongst the children, foster sensitivity towards others and their feelings, and work hard to develop every child’s self-esteem and confidence, all whilst they develop the skills they need to succeed at school. Kanga’s Pouch were recently awarded ‘Outstanding Nursery Services and Standards’ by the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs.
