Our environments are filled with order which is essential for a child to feel secure within their environment, to build on existing experiences, open spaces free from clutter, where every material is considered for its purpose, every corner is ever-evolving to encourage children to be drawn deeply into their interests. The space encourages collaboration, communication, exploration and builds on the child’s sense of belonging and ownership. The space respects children are capable by providing them with authentic materials & tools that embeds and promotes a natural, sustainable environment.
Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it. Children are allowed to develop freely, through social collaboration, working in groups, where each child is an equal participant, having their thoughts and questions valued they will feel connected to everything and are naturally caring to each other and the world around them. We will respond to children’s ideas and play and use intentional teaching to scaffold and extend each child’s learning. Children have the freedom to follow their interests, and activities will be designed to support their natural development therefore giving children power to educate themselves through their own investigations.
We value and recognise the unique contribution of each family to the quality of care provided. The scheme welcomes family and community participation and encourages involvement within the service and scheme, as a whole. Working in collaboration, educators and coordination unit aim to extend involvement and develop genuine partnerships with families and the community in the education of children. Partnerships are about working together through partners contributing different skills, knowledge and perspective in complimentary ways and sharing in the decision making.
