We aim to:

  • Create an atmosphere where every child feels secure, valued and confident.
  • Provide activities that are appropriate to ensure that children acquire the necessary skills, concepts and attitudes that form part of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
  • Reflect on children’s needs and interests and ensure that activities meet their individual needs.
  • Acknowledge parents in their role as children’s prime educators and seeks to promote a partnership with them that develops a shared understanding with mutual respect and dialogue.
  • Pay high regard to health and safety to meet the needs of young children with appropriate space, facilities and equipment.
  • Monitor, assess and keep records of skills and progression.
  • Develop a positive learning environment by providing good resources/materials.
  • Ensure no child is excluded or disadvantaged because of his/her race, culture or religion, home language, family background, special educational needs, disability, gender or ability.

Our policy is that all children should feel included, secure and valued.
