Learning and Development

Our approach is to help every child develop into confident, independent learners. The right environment and teachers are key to this.

We work with the belief that period up to 4 years of age is a crucial development period and that children can build a solid foundation on which to base further learning at school. The approach is based on:

- Foundation of strong caring relationships with staff and teachers
- Focus on both child care and child development
- Children developing at their own pace
- Monitoring and evaluating learning and development
- Creating an environment of respect
- A family-based setting, with children of different ages mixing together and learning from each other'

The approach applies to children of all abilities including those with additional learning needs, for whom we have specialist trained staff.
