Our setting is fully inclusive in meeting the needs of all children, particularly those that arise from their religion, social and economic background, gender, ability or disability or English being an additional language. We promote equality of opportunity and value diversity for all children and families. We encourage mothers, fathers, relations and other carers (including childminders) to take part in the life of the nursery and to contribute fully.
Our main aim is that all children develop as individuals and we make appropriate provision within the curriculum to ensure each child receives the widest possible opportunity to develop their skills and abilities. We look to encourage all aspects of development, supporting and guiding children emotionally, socially, physically and intellectually. We also hope to encourage confidence and independence to help children cope in life and in preparation for the school environment. Our care provision is governed by Ofsted and recognised through regular inspections; our last inspection confirmed us as Outstanding in our effectiveness of parent partnerships, the extent to which children adopt healthy lifestyles and the extent to which children make a positive contribution. We were confirmed 'Good' in all other areas of provision. Our curriculum planning is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage set out by Dept for Children, Schools and Families (DCFS).
