We believe that parents are children’s first educators and work closely with them in order to support and extend learning opportunities. We believe we need to foster the skills of independence so children can make the most of the resources around them. We believe that children are unique individuals, who need to follow their interests through play and investigation of the world. We believe that children are social beings who will, with the support of their keyworkers, go on to develop amazing relationships with their peers. We believe that children need to learn about the importance of eating healthy food, and being active, in order for them to grow and thrive. We believe that being reflective practitioners we can ensure that this belief becomes a reality. 



We want all children to be active learners, become critical thinkers, to persevere and always do their best.



To make sure our environment is child centred. Happy children learn!!!

The nursery focuses on encouraging children’s independence and choice to support their learning. We encourage fun through freedom of choice, child initiative activities along with adult initiative activities.



In order to be most effective it is important that all staff remain up to date with current developments in the Early Years. We provide staff with access to high quality training but are very aware that we need to show how this has impacted on our practice. Our observations have noted higher levels of engagement and involvement. We also have 1 day inset per year so that all staff can be up to date.
