Our Philosophy

‘Every child deserves the best possible start in life and support to fulfil their potential.  A child’s experience in the early years has a major impact on their future life chances.  A secure, safe and happy childhood is important in it’s own right, and it provides the foundation for children to make the most of their abilities as they grow up’ (DfES, 2007:2)

 

This sets out what we will aim to achieve for your child, by providing high quality care and learning experiences which are child centered we can treat every child as an individual by identifying any particular needs and requirements.

Our fully trained, qualified and dedicated staff ensure that your child is prepared for the future using a play based curriculum (EYFS).

 

By working in partnership with parents we will provide a holistic approach to your child’s growth and development ensuring that children, parents and families have the best possible experience from our nurseries.

Our Nursery Vision

We pride ourselves on being inclusive settings. The nursery vision which is promoted by the Nursery teams is that each child is unique with individual needs; we are committed to ensuring that each child reaches their full potential
