Our  Early Learning and Childcare Vision and Aims

Our vision - We believe that play is educationally powerful, the staff plan individually and jointly using their knowledge of the curriculum and of the children’s developmental stages and interests. This is delivered through child led activities both indoors and outdoors. We endeavour to create a positive, welcoming, inclusive, stimulating environment where all children are nurtured and encouraged to reach their full potential through their play.

 

At Broom nursery we strive to offer a high quality service.

We will aim to:

  • Provide a safe and stimulating environment in which our children become confident individuals.
  • Encourage the emotional, social, physical, creative and intellectual development of our children.
  • Promote the welfare of our children
  • Encourage positive attitudes and develop confidence and self-esteem.
  • Ensure our children become successful learners and responsible citizens with an understanding of the world around them.
  • Create and provide a variety of quality opportunities for learning which will stimulate and encourage imagination.
  • Extend our children’s abilities to communicate ideas and feelings and become effective contributors.
