Curiouser and curiouser.
Kids are curious and far be it for us to hinder that. In providing a safe, happy and inclusive setting we encourage the children to explore their interests through a combination of free play and structured activities, inside and out.
We aim to create an environment where children can develop socially, emotionally and intellectually. Building their self esteem and confidence alongside key life skills is part of the journey we support the children on in preparing them for the transition to school and beyond.
We invite the children to explore and become independent, and our free-flow indoor-outdoor setting encourages this. We’re so very lucky to have such a pretty rural setting and proactively nurture the children’s enjoyment of outdoor activities and love of the fresh air.
Our team of qualified early years specialists bring a fun and personable vibe to the setting. Each child is allocated a keyworker primarily responsible for their care, observing and supporting their development requirements as well as maintaining parent-preschool communication.
We believe that one of the most important ways children learn is by observing how adults behave.
As adults we:
treat each child as an individual and with respect
encourage each child to treat others with respect
speak kindly to others
offer real choices to the children
observe each child and continuously assess their wellbeing
work closely with parents to support their child’s needs
work closely as a team to communicate about children’s individual needs
work with colleagues from other agencies in the best interests of each child
We encourage adults and children to:
look after each other
look after toys and resources
not to hurt the feelings of others
not to physically hurt others
not to shout unless in need of help
ask for help if being hurt or bullied
