THE NURSERY ETHOS: Our priority is respecting every child as an individual, providing them with professional care and helping them in every possible way to develop their social, emotional, physical and intellectual skills in order to reach their full potential.
In our nursery, we want to show the children that Jesus is the centre of all that is happening in our lives. We celebrate Roman Catholic events and traditional events from other religions of children who attend our nursery. We cultivate traditional days from Polish as well as English calendar. We value every person regardless of culture, language, religion, race, ability, age, gender, origins and economic status.
The sessions organised in our setting are based on the Early Years Fundation Stage (EYFS), as well as on some of the Montessorri method of teaching and chosen programmes from other countries.
Our goal is to help children reach their potential through respecting every child as an individual, respecting their rights, providing the best possible conditions for optimal development, ensuring safety, stability, learning through experience of first separation from parents, contact with other children, group interaction and preparing for the reception class.
The child’s individual development is supported by daily information sharing between the Parent and a member of staff, in the child’s file. It also contains child’s worksheets and artwork, observations of child’s developmental progress, activity planning- everyday directed activities and targets tailored individually for every child in order to help them reach milestones on their developmental scale. Several thousands of photos available on our website www.loveourchild.co.uk link OUR PHOTOS ALBUMS. The planned activities are led in English and Polish language simultaneously, by bilingual staff.
