We met with Mandy, the founder of Little Me Nurseries, to learn all about them!
What is Little Me Nurseries and what services do you offer?
We are a family owned company and pride ourselves on offering caring and nurturing environments for “little ones” in our nurseries. We encourage children to become independent and confident through hands on experiences and work in close partnership with parents and carers to ensure that each child’s journey with us prepares them with the skills they need for life.
How was Little Me founded and when?
I started Little Me Day Nurseries in 2011 when my children were both young. My background was Marketing & PR and whilst I was on a career break I found a completely new direction for my family and myself.
When will you be open at Republic?
We expect Building works to be completed end of September, the children’s garden to be completed end of October and we are hoping to be open beginning of November (all being well)
How many people be will working at Little Me, Republic?
When the nursery is full we expect to have approx. 25 staff
What’s your favourite thing about what you do?
Although the company has grown and we have 4 nurseries I still enjoy working in the rooms with the staff and children as I can use this experience to make decisions on what equipment to buy, ensure policies and procedures are being maintained, review our education program and constantly look at ways to raise the standards across all areas of the business.
What are you looking forward to about moving in to Republic?
We like to be good neighbours and look forward to welcoming people for tea/coffee with fresh cakes on opening! I am also excited about the site growing and developing and getting busier.
Do you have any events coming up?
We will be welcoming parents and children to view the nursery from middle of October onwards.
You can find out more about them on their website here.
Wishing Little Me and the team a warm welcome into the Republic community. We look forward to introducing you all to one another soon.
