“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.
We follow the EYFS Curriculum supporting children in the following areas of development.
Communication and Language;
Personal, Social and Emotional Development;
Understanding the World;
Expressive Arts and Design.
