Our Aims

Our Aims are for all children to be encouraged to be themselves and to:

  • Grow in self-confidence, experience success and thus develop a good self-image

  • Develop at their own rate through challenging, progressive play

  • Learn to play co-operatively and share with others

  • Communicate thoughts, ideas and feelings clearly to both adults and children

  • Deepen and lengthen concentration through their natural spontaneous curiosity and interests

  • Choose and explore a wide range of materials which allow them to express themselves    

      appropriately and creatively

  • Share in the wonder and excitement created by books, stories, songs, rhymes, music and

      the natural environment

  • Appreciate and practice social skills and learning to care for others

  • Enjoy the satisfaction of work well done and share this with their parents



Our Values

  • Young children are entitled to their childhood

  • All children are treated equally

  • As well as the primary needs, the need for acceptance, love, approval, encouragement and security are crucial to the development of the young child and to the promotion of a good self-image

  • Parents are valued as their children’s first educators and are viewed as active partners of

      the preschool staff

  • It is in the nature of the young child to be active. Purposeful and structured play is vital to all aspects of his/her development

  • The child's past experiences, individual attributes and abilities should be recognised,

      accepted and built upon
