Starting Nursery is a big step for children and parents - new place, new faces, lots of things to do and friends to make.
It is very important to us that your child is happy and safe and that as a parent you are confident with the service we provide.
We therefore promote every child's right to be strong, resilient and listened to.
We have identified that children take an active part in their own development and learning. Support for children is based on listening to them and observing them, making sure what we provide for them builds on what they already can do and understand.
We value and encourage children's friendships as these help them to feel they belong. As they learn through play, it means that through first hand experiences that are child-led and that involve exploration and discovery. We observe that children learn best in well planned indoor and outdoor spaces, where they are free to play as they choose. We ensure they have resources to play with and can choose activities that help them to think, create and express their ideas and feelings. Through discovery and finding out together, they build their knowledge about the world.
