We aim to ensure that each child:
– is in a safe and stimulating environment
– is given generous care and attention, because of our ratio of qualified
staff to children, as well as volunteer helpers
– has the chance to join in with other children and adults to live, play, work and learn together
– is helped to take forward her/his learning and development by being helped to build on what she/he already knows and can do
– has a key person who makes sure each child makes satisfying progress
– is in a setting that sees parents as partners in helping each child to learn and develop
– is in a setting in which parents help to shape the service it offers
Provision for the development and learning of children from birth to 5 years is guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage. Our provision reflects the four overarching principles of the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (DfE 2014):
A Unique Child
Every child is a unique child who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners, parents and carers.
Learning and Development
Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early year’s provision including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
We keep a developmental record of achievement for each child, which helps us to celebrate their achievements together. The record also helps us to provide your child with the encouragement they need to make progress and to support their wellbeing.
