Our Mission

“We aim to create a safe, secure environment where all children, families and staff feel valued, empowered and happy to grow and learn together. Children actively learn through play and develop independence, confidence and self-esteem, skilfully supported by qualified practitioners who creatively make learning fun for everyone.”

We believe that:

  •  Parent’s contributions are the foundations upon which we build and extend children’s learning.

  • All children are unique individuals who learn and develop in different ways and at different rates.

  • Every child has the right to have their individual needs recognised and fulfilled.

  • Children’s opinions and interests must be listened to, recognised, valued and responded to.

  • Children should know that their ideas and contributions are listened to and valued.

  • Children are active learners who learn through playing and interacting with a wide variety of open-ended resources in an enabling and vibrant environment.

  • All children should be encouraged to make independent choices.

  • All children should be supported to manage their own self-care.

  • All children should learn about healthy lifestyles.

  • All children should be encouraged to experience risk and challenge in a safe and secure environment.

  • Every member of staff is important and their contribution should be valued.

  • The quality of the interaction between practitioners and children impacts upon the well-being and development of children.

  • Practitioners must understand how children learn and develop and how to support individual children’s learning.

  • Children thrive within the context of warm, caring relationships with trusted adults.

  • Practitioners and volunteers working with children must be enthusiastic, committed, knowledgeable and empathetic team members.

  • Children should learn about different people in their community and all around the world in a way that they can understand and relate to.

  • Children need support to play and learn together, so that they learn to co-operate, resolve conflict and make friends.
