If you think you can, you can. If you think you can't, you're right.

Our Values: Family, Resilience, Knowledge, Creativity, Respect

We value ‘family’ and recognise the importance of establishing effective relationships. Parents are seen as active participants in their children’s education and we work towards building a community where communal pride and respect are based on family values and respect for other people’s values, views and ideas.

Emotional resilience is at the heart of everything we do. We want our children to develop ‘have a go’ attitudes; to be happy, healthy and active; to feel loved, valued and capable. We know children flourish most when they are free to explore and fully appreciate the unique daily challenges they face.

Knowledge is key to unlocking the potential. As skilled early years teachers and practitioners we recognise that we never stop learning. We look back for inspiration to past theories and philosophies and apply what we learn to our current context. Children are encouraged to become global learners, curious, critical thinkers, to ask questions and share their views and opinions safe within the knowledge that their opinions will be acknowledged and valued.

Creativity is vital if we are to prepare children for unknown roles and responsibilities in the future. Creating stimulating and exciting environments, experiences and provocations is important to us. We acknowledge that everyone has a story and support children to become independent storytellers. Through ‘their stories’ children are encouraged to embrace their own voices and grow confident in their ideas.

Respect for ourselves, each other and our environments. We focus on educating our children and community to build loving relationships where we learn to treat others as we want to be treated and where tolerance, understanding and equality forms the foundations of their world.
