Childhood Trust

At Little Cherubs we are passionate about childcare, believing each & every child matters. We support children individually to help them reach their full potential and fully pre-pare for school

We encourage learning through imaginative & fun play to help the children grow, throughout their time with us.
The positive images from staff help children, and families to show respect for each other and themselves, promoting diversity & equality.

About the Charity

The Childhood Trust is London's child poverty charity, it was founded with a simple vision: to support vulnerable children living in poverty in London.

They work to focus on helping children living in poverty to overcome the many disadvantages. 

London children are much more likely to live in poor households than children in the rest of England and are less likely to be able to afford everyday items than those elsewhere in the country.

55% of poor children in London are materially deprived compared to 44% in the rest of England.

Child poverty in London is about more than income, for many children poverty can mean uncertainty, stress, hunger, loneliness, boredom, poor health and a lack of opportunities. The most disadvantaged children fall at least two years behind their peers when they come to sit their GCSE's. 

How will we help?

We will be fundraising in various ways, throughout 2020, such as:

  • Raffles (amazing prizes)
  • Cake sales,
  • Dress Up days,
  • Sponsored Events
  • Staff Volunteering for projects
  • Staff Challenges
  • Fundraising page (Any donations throughout the year will be greatly appreciated)

 

Meals that matter


Meals That Matter

Meals that matter is a volunteer programme that works in reducing the effects of food poverty on low income families in London.

We have sent our staff to Volunteer, plan, cook, and serve hot healthy meals to children & young people.

Spending time with the children to see what a difference that it makes to their lives 400,000 children under 16 in London struggle to afford & access enough food.

1 in 10 primary school children are only eating half the amount of the daily calories recommended for their age.
Decorate a childs life


Decorate a Childs Life

Decorate A Child’s Life is The Childhood Trust’s volunteer programme that offers volunteers the unique opportunity to transform disadvantaged children’s lives through renovating their bedrooms.

Too many children in London are living in conditions of extreme deprivation; they’re often living in flats without heating, sharing beds with their parents and siblings, and sleeping on mouldy mattresses without proper bedding. In these conditions, children become isolated, ashamed, and angry with damaging consequences for their education and life chances.

Volunteer groups then spend one day painting, carrying out small repairs, and assembling flat pack furniture to give the bedroom or community room a full makeover.

Meet Cassie

Cassie has worked for Little Cherubs for 10 Years completing her apprenticeship Level 2.

Cassie's hair is about '40'  inches long reaching a long way down her back. She has always had long hair and very rarely has it cut (only trimmed). She has taken the amazing decision to help TWO charities by cutting her hair!!!

Cassie will be asking for sponsorship donations for our chosen charity 'The Childhood Trust' & donating her hair to another great cause 'Little Princess Trust'. Providing free real hair wigs to children and young people with hair loss, and funding vital research into childhood cancers.

Donations can be made through www.justgiving/fundraising/littlecherubs

We are all really proud of Cassie making this selfless donation to help others and would really like to see as many Parents/Carers at our Friend of Little Cherubs evening to witness the event. We will let you know of the date of this special day as soon as possible.

Partnership with Parents

Partnership with Parents

As part of our partnership with parents and keeping that ‘Family feel’ we hold Friends of Little Cherubs meetings 3 times a year.

It is an ideal opportunity for parents/carers, staff and other parties connected with the nursery to meet informally to discuss forthcoming events, current topics and any updates on child development. This is also a good time for parents to get to know the staff and other families; sharing ideas and experiences.
