Our aim is to provide a safe and caring environment for your child, in a safe and secure setting. We will encourage your child to learn autonomously and as part of a group. Children in our care are encouraged to use their imagination and to ask questions. The children learn through real-life experiences such as cooking, baking, shopping. Gardening, mealtimes and outings to exciting places of interest.
Resources are organised so that they are readily accessible to children and supports children’s play and learning. First hand experiences allow children to build on their natural curiosity as learners. Each child is encouraged to become confident, independent and to develop their own self esteem.
Children benefit from consistent care. Many children who join the setting will remain in our care until they move onto school. Providing a stable happy and secure environment has been of great benefit to the children in our care.
The Early Years practitioners will aim to provide play
activities and learning experiences that are appropriate to each child’s age and development. Supporting and stimulating children’s social, physical, intellectual, communication and emotional
development (SPICE) The Early Years Foundation Stage incorporating the
