  • Offer a wide ranging curriculum linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
  • Offer an “open door” policy enabling parents to form partnerships with their child’s keyPerson and all practitioners’, ensuring each child’s individual developmental needs are achieved.  We welcome suggestions and comments that will help us provide the best quality care for you and your child.
  • Ensure children, parents, guardians and carers are treated as individuals irrespective of religion, gender, cultural origin or ability.
