About Us

Our Aims

Briefly our aims can be remembered by the strapline 'LEARN':

Learning and development is at the heart of everything we do.  Meaningful interactions support children in their next steps of their learning journey

Every child is unique, confident and feels safe.  Their needs are paramount and always at the heart of everything we do

Activities are outstanding, fun, engaging and educational

Relationships with parents, carers,  school and other professionals are important in order to share knowledge and support children to the best of our ability

Nurturing and caring staff bring out the best in the children and each other through meaningful interactions.

 

 In more detail:

 

  • We treat all children equally, with respect as individuals and address them in a warm and caring manner, offering praise and encouragement, whilst supporting their choices.
  • By providing a playful, purposeful, flexible and inclusive approach to our day-to-day activities enables a child to participate and make progress in our lively and stimulating environment.
  • By recognising parents and carers are the child's primary educators, encourage them to become involved and fully informed as partners, valuing feedback
  • Early identification of children's needs is important to allow appropriate support which will enable children to flourish and reach their full potential. Good early years principles and practice provides the foundation upon which children with additional needs can be supported by flexible approaches and a differentiated curriculum
  • We ensure that the quality of teaching is of a consistently high standard and staff have secure knowledge and understanding of outcomes for all areas of the curriculum.
  • All children are actively encouraged and enabled to fulfil their potential. ~Their developmental progress is monitored and regularly feedback and discussed with parents and carers.
  • Children are encouraged to value and respect each other; their behaviour is monitored and positively managed.

Working together for your children

Situated in the grounds of Worth Primary School we are proud to offer a bright, nurturing and stimulating indoor and outdoor environment for young children. We forge strong links with the primary school; ensuring children are becoming familiar with a school environment, enhancing the transition process into school.

In our setting we maintain the ratio of adults to children in the setting that is set through the Statutory Welfare Requirements. We also have volunteer parent helpers where possible to complement these ratios. This helps us to give time and attention to each child, talking with them about their interests and activities and allowing them to explore and be adventurous in a controlled and safe environment.

Safeguarding Children

Our setting has a duty under the law to help safeguard children against suspected or actual 'significant harm'. Our employment practices ensure children against the likelihood of abuse in our setting and we have a procedure for managing complaints or allegations against a member of staff. Our way of working with children and their parents ensures we are aware of any problems that may emerge and offer support, including referral to appropriate agencies when necessary, to help families in difficulty.

Special Educational Needs

As part of the setting's policy to make sure that its provision meets the needs of each individual child, we take account of any special needs a child may have. The setting has a dedicated SEND co-ordinator and works to the requirements of the 1993 Education Act and the SEND Code of Practice (2014). 

Opening Hours

We are open Monday to Friday 8.45am to 3.00pm term time only.
