Childcare for children aged 2 - 11 years all year round (49 weeks)
Our philosophy, as a nursery, is that children need to feel safe within an environment that encourages them to use and build upon skills they already have, helping them reach their individual goals with or without support.
We aim to raise their self esteem and encourage them to make the right choices and decisions that will guide them through lifes little difficulties.
We know that children who have high quality care and support through their early years will go on to become fine young adults who can make a positive contribution to the community in which they live and beyond.
We follow the revised EYFS curriculum (2012) and base our work with the children around the nurseries 5 principles, which are:-
1. Promoting high quality practice, train and gain
2.See the world through a child's eyes
3.Promote equality and inclusiveness
4.Observe, plan, execute, evaluate
We also believe that 'play' has enormous value and as such, this is our logo.
'Play is indeed the children's work and the means by which he or she grows and develops' - Issacs (1929)
We hope to see you again! Check back later for new updates to our website.
