Within our early years provisions our company has 5 exceptional nursery sites that offer outstanding childcare for children and their families.

As our aim is to provide a safe, happy and caring learning environment, I am certain that we are able to facilitate our aims with our amazing highly motivated qualified employees; this enables us to establish the key for success in developing a culture of ambition and achievement that promotes wellbeing and respect in an inclusive and harmonious environment for both our children and staff teams as both learners and educators.

My name is Alma Imamovic. I am currently working as an ELDT manager for Little Inventors Montessori. I have a range of qualifications within Early Years; and over 15 years of experience working in Early Years, where I started as a student and with dedication, commitment and development of new skills, reached where I am today; My employment with Little Inventors Montessori started in 2018 and still is very joyful and very rewarding place to work.
At Little Inventors Montessori we all are respected, given opportunities to develop our skills, opportunity to study, learn and be promoted. Staff is rewarded with many benefits but most importantly with very "open door policy" to support everyone's well being and personal training and development.
My time is equally divided, visiting all of our 5 amazing settings ,supporting staff team to deliver daily outstanding practice, creating inviting, curious and inspiring environment, enabling all the staff team to have high aspiration for all of our children, preparing them for transition and their next learning journey.
We take pride in delivering Montessori philosophy and approach which is very much foundation of leaning within our settings.
Montessori approach along with EYFS development support all the children's independence and ability to do things for themselves.
This is achieved by giving children opportunities; opportunities to move, to dress themselves, to choose what they want to do, and to help the adults with tasks. When the children are able to do things for themselves there is an increase in their self belief, self confidence and esteem that they may carry on throughout their life as this is our main vision to prepare children for life, helping them to develop range of skills for their future and be successful, confident individuals who will make a difference in their communities.
To summarise how special our settings are this is what we face daily and what make us stronger and unique.
