To provide high-quality care and education for children below statutory school age;

  • We work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop;

  • We add to the life and well-being of the local community; and

  • We offer children and their parents a service that promotes equality and values diversity.

We aim to ensure that each child:

  • is in a safe and stimulating environment;

  • is given generous care and attention, because of our ratio of qualified staff to children.

  • has the chance to join with other children and adults to live, play, work and learn together;

  • is helped to take forward their learning and development by being helped to build on what they already knows and can do;

  • has a personal key person who makes sure each child makes satisfying progress;

Our preschool believes that care and education are equally important in the experience which we offer children. The routines and activities that make up the day in the preschool are provided in ways that:

  • help each child to feel that they are a valued member of the preschool;

  • ensure the safety of each child;

  • help children to gain from the social experience of being part of a group; and

  • provide children with opportunities to learn and help them to value learning
