Our aims

AIMS & PRINCIPLES – in accordance with those prepared by the Department for Education & Employment for early years practitioners:

  • We promise to understand and implement a relevant, high quality curriculum tailored to suit each child’s individual needs
  • We understand that children develop rapidly in their early years, physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. We will support and extend each child’s knowledge, skills, understanding and confidence
  • We believe that all children should feel included, secure and valued. We believe in building a positive relationship with carers
  • We will build on each child’s existing knowledge, encouraging a positive attitude and disposition to learn
  • No child will be excluded or disadvantaged because of ethnicity, culture or religion, home language, family background, special educational needs, disability, gender or ability
  • We believe that parents and practitioners (Daisy-Chain) should work together in a atmosphere of mutual respect within which children can have security and confidence
  • We promise to prepare a quality curriculum, being carefully structured considering:
    • Different starting points from which children develop their learning
    • Appropriate to child’s needs
    • Opportunities for indoor and outdoor learning
  • We promise to provide opportunities for planned activities and self-initiated activities leading from the children’s own interests
  • We promise to provide a rich and stimulating experience, with a well planned and organised environment, leading from the children’s interests
  • We promise to provide high quality care and education by our staff who are dedicated to improving their professional development

These principles are the basis on which our practice has been developed.
