We believe that the early years of a child are vital as development during this stage is rapid.
Early years education plays an important role in the development of a child and meeting his/her current needs as well as shaping their future.
As early childhood educators we believe in providing high quality early years education and care. We believe this can be achieved by creating a physical environment that is safe, secure and supported at all times while being flexible and adaptable to the needs of each child. We believe that children come to understand more about the world around them through their play and experiences.
We believe in diversity and in the inclusion of each child’s culture. We believe that each child is unique and that it is important to provide a wide variety of open-ended resources within the environment to give each child the opportunity to explore, investigate, create and learn by participating confidently with other children and also with their educators.
We believe in the importance of working in partnerships with families. This enables us to form strong, respectful bonds, which allows us to share knowledge and work collaboratively for the benefit of the child.
