Learning and Curriculum

Vision, aims and values

The ways in which the child engages with other people and their environment – playing and exploring, active learning, and creating and thinking critically – underpin learning and development across all areas and support the child to remain an effective and motivated learner.


At our setting we ensure that each child:

  • Is in a safe and stimulating environment

  • Is given generous care and attention

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

  • Is helped to take forward his/her learning and development

  • Will be supported and encouraged to build upon what he/she already knows and can do

  • Has a personal key person who makes sure each child makes at least good progress

  • Is in a setting that sees parents as partners in helping each child to learn and develop

  • Is in a setting in which parents help to shape the service it offers
