Aims and Ethos
Our staff will encourage your child’s natural curiosity and willingness to learn and will help them on their educational path, providing a sound foundation from which future opportunities and interests will grow.
We believe that a child's early experiences should be of the highest quality and suited to their own individual needs. We aim to encourage learning through play in a caring and happy environment, to make friends and feel secure with those around them.
With our extensive range of resources the children are provided with plenty of opportunities to experiment with their learning, to develop their physical, intellectual, language, emotional and social skills.
We believe that the children should all learn to respect each other and their surroundings too. By promoting positive behaviour in our nursery we aim to encourage the children to show regard for their friends, the grown-ups and the equipment they play with.
If we are unhappy with something then we will talk with the child and find that the response from the child is more effective when we use words like" happy" or "sad" as they are phrases that they can relate to.
We aim to create an environment that involves parent partnership, after all you know your child much better than we do! You are very welcome to visit the nursery at any time and we are always happy to share information with you about your child's day.
Busy Beanie books are written in and sent home daily, which inform you of what your child has achieved during the day (this is available in the Ducklings and Goslings Room and it can be requested for the Cygnets room.) This is also a method of communicating with the team if you are unable to come into the nursery.
