Our Principles

The principles of our nursery are at the centre of what we do:

Child Centred

The nursery ensures that the children’s needs in all their diversity should come first. Each child’s individual needs are met and all levels of capability are supported and enhanced.

Educational

The nursery fosters learning that takes into account the children’s ages and stages of development looking at all their needs holistically using the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework for guidance.

Equal and Diverse

The nursery reflects the plurality of the country as a whole and the particular community profiles of Gravesend and Dartford

Healthy

The nursery promotes good health for the children in a safe and secure environment. We offer a wide range of healthy food and snacks freshly prepared by our Nursery Cook.

Safeguarding

Please read this document for information regarding Safeguarding and what it means to your child.

Equal access to all activities

Children have a right to grow and learn in an environment free from prejudice and without discrimination. Our nursery is committed to taking positive action to eliminate discrimination on the grounds of race, gender or disability. All children attending the nursery will have equal access to all the activities and consideration will be given to the individual needs of all children.
