Childcare Choices

Our Aims 

It is our aim to provide a warm,environment in which each child is valued as a unique individual and their self-esteem nurtured. We focus on each child feeling safe and secure and happy and cared for. Happy children make confident learners which are encouraged through purposeful play as the most important tool for learning in the early years. Adults encourage children’s intentions, creativity, problem solving and thinking skills and by forming partnerships with children and following their ideas and interests.

We aim to provide the very highest standards in both pre-school education and care by:

  • Establishing and developing positive partnerships with parents and carers so that we may work together to continue the development that has been started at home.
  • Providing a warm, caring environment for young children to enable secure emotional development and relationships with other children and adults.
  • Creating a happy, secure and stimulating environment where children discover for themselves that learning is enjoyable through the play and activities they can experience.
  • Helping children to develop independence, self-confidence, respect for their environment and consideration for others.
  • Providing a well-planned, motivating environment, which encourages active learning, provokes curiosity and exploration and links the indoor and outdoor space to encourage the all-round development of each child for a solid foundation for future learning.
  • Offering equal opportunities to everyone whilst respecting and valuing our differences.
  • Sharing in the experiences of the wider school community as appropriate and engaging with experience s in the local community.
