      Isabel Jude

      Nursery Practitioner

      Hello! My name is Isabel Jude and I have been a Nursery Practitioner at Little Bears Nursery for more than a year, since I arrived in England and I absolutely love it. Before that I worked in Malaysia, for a year, in an International Childcare Center, that was an amazing experience because of the Multicultural setting. I had the opportunity to teach Portuguese to adults in Australia as a second language and also volunteered in Portugal for 5 years with primary school children doing extracurricular activities.

      I believe that Little Bears is a wonderful place for a child to begin their education both academically and emotionally. We are a great team with an incredible passion for each individual child. I feel very proud and lucky to be part of such a great group of teachers.

  • The Little Bear's Approach
    The Scaffolding Approach

    We view learning as a journey which involves acquiring new skills and knowledge in a caring, enriched and multi sensory environment where everyone’s views matter. We see children as individuals with their own needs and interests which enable us to tailor their learning experiences to best effect.

    Not just education

    We believe in preparing our children to cope with the demands of formal education and life. So not only do we plan to progress their academic experiences but also focus on social skills and building up their self esteem to create happy, balanced individuals.

    Learning through play

    Children learn best through play. The Little Bear’s staff therefore work with the parents to educate them about the benefits of play and how they can also work with their children to further their learning in this way.

    Preparing children for the next step

    Little Bear’s aims to prepare your little Bear Cub for the next stage in their learning journey. Working with them to articulate their thoughts, feelings and views in a safe and forgiving environment.
