SAFEGUARDING

Our preschool works with children and parents to ensure the rights and safety of children and to give them the very best start in life. All staff have attended Safeguarding Children training .

VALUING DIVERSITY AND PROMOTING EQUALITY

Our setting is committed to anti-discriminatory practice to promote equality of opportunity and valuing diversity for all children and families.

SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS

We provide an environment in which all children, including those with special educational needs, are supported to reach their full potential. We have an experienced SENCO (Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator) who ensures our provision meets the needs of each individual child

LEARNING AND DEVELOPMENT

The provision for children’s development and learning is guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage. Our provision reflects the four overreaching principles for the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage.

  • A unique child
    Every child is a unique child who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable and self-assured
  • Positive relationships
    Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
  • Enabling environments
    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 and carers.
  • Learning and development
    Children develop and learn in different ways. The framework covers the education of all children in the early years, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
