Our Philosophy

It is our aim to provide the highest standards of excellence in nursery care, early learning, and education for our children where each child is welcomed, valued, secure, stimulated, and encouraged to develop at their own pace. To do this we put the child at the centre – regarding each child as an individual whose experience is of central importance. We recognise and explore their interests and aptitudes and offer appropriate activities to encourage success and achievement.

Our children are nurtured and assisted by our high-quality and dedicated staff to develop intellectually, emotionally, socially, creatively, and physically to their full potential in a culture of fun, learning, and equal opportunity.

We welcome children from any religious or cultural background and children with additional needs. Values based on Christian ethics form the basis for the encouragement of good citizenship and behaviour.

We believe in the importance of working in partnership with parents and we encourage both parents and children to regard the nursery as an extension of the family home.
