We believe in valuing and respecting the multiple cultural, spiritual and personal backgrounds within our community. We are inspired by the connections, experience and knowledge in which they share. We believe that through open engagement, sharing of ideas and developing trusted relationships we can enrich children's lives.
We believe that every child should experience a sense of belonging to their environment and the people who are part it. We strive for every child to feel they are being part of their own world as it is today. A child’s identity, their knowledge and understandings are valued as a big part of who they are becoming.
We strive for an environment that is calm, nurturing, warm, supportive and inclusive. We believe that the environment is an imperative teaching tool. Promoting curiosity in our natural environment encourages all children to be involved in their future. We believe that a sustainable future which equips our children with resources and knowledge of both natural and man-made environments is paramount. Environments that foster children to hold a sense of security and belonging will promote engagement, creativity and learning which underpins each individual’s wellbeing.
We believe that children are our future. Their acquisition for learning is our daily foundation. We believe that children have the right for their needs to be met and strengths to be celebrated. We understand that each child’s development and identity is unique and we strive for a space that is inclusive to all.
We believe that consistent learning, professional development and critical reflection is essential to professional growth and stronger outcomes for children and educators. Working collaboratively as a team, encouraging each other, sustaining support and respectful relationships is imperative for service cohesion, which makes an enjoyable space for all.
We believe that educators and management who have equal voice and adaptability can contribute, investigate together, share ideas and sustain a strong effective and efficient management structure.
We believe in interest-based learning in an environment which encourages children to be self-thinkers and obtain a strong sense of identity and wellbeing. Encouraging and embracing a play centred environment facilitates children to be active in their own learning. We strive to empower children, by using their thoughts, ideas and strengths to develop events within our curriculum. We value the implementation of the Early Years Learning Framework and the way in which it guides our practice.
