Our principles are guided by the principles of the EYFS

A Unique Child:

Every child is a unique learner from birth who can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.

  • The development of confidence and positive self-esteem are integral to learning.


Positive Relationships:

Children learn to be strong and independent from a base of loving and secure relationships with parents and/or a key person.

  • Early childhood is the foundation on which children build the rest of their lives. It is not just a preparation for the next stage, it is vitally important in itself.
  • The relationships which children establish with adults and other children are of central importance to their development.


Enabling Environments:

The environment plays a key role in supporting and extending children’s development and learning.

  • Children learn more effectively when they are actively involved and interested.
  • Independence is promoted through a process of sustained shared thinking with adults and other children.


Learning and Developing:

Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates and all areas of Learning and Development are equally important and inter-connected.

  • Children develop emotionally, intellectually, morally, physically socially and spiritually and at different rates. All aspects of development are equally important and are interwoven.
  • What children can do rather than what they cannot do, are the starting points in their learning.
  • There are many forms of intelligence and at this setting we recognize, value and celebrate all of them.
