The nursery is built upon good clear family values and as a nursery we have true commitment from all our staff, children and partners
In every day nursery life we actively promote our Nursery Charter. The Charter is about our Nursery Values and what we deem as acceptable behaviour from all adults, children and partners that we come into contact with on a daily basis and how we should behave ourselves.
There are 4 important areas within our charter and below is just a small example of what each individual section would mean to anybody attending our setting.
Children are actively encouraged within the setting to have a voice and what we mean by this is we have certain times of each day when they can discuss the events of the day and anything else that they may want to mention. This is carried out in circle time, a quiet part of the day when topics such as “the weekend” or “Up and coming events and talked through with the children in a circle environment. Everybody is listened to and given chance to speak. With a show of hands and turn taking being actively encouraged. Each child must feel valued.
Throughout the day many activities are readily available for all children and during this time they must learn to take turns, share and be patient of others.
Ensure that children understand their own and others’ behaviour and its consequences, helping them to distinguish right from wrong
Work with children to create the rules and the codes of behaviour, such as agreeing the rules about tidying up, and also ensuring children understand that the rules apply to everyone
We provide opportunities for children to develop their self-knowledge, self-esteem and increase their confidence in their own abilities, for example, through allowing children to take risks on an obstacle course and talking about their experiences and learning
We encourage a range of experiences that allow children to explore the language of feelings and responsibility, reflect on their differences and understand everyone is free to have different opinions
Encourage and explain to children about the importance of tolerant behaviours, such as sharing and respecting each other’s opinions
Promote diverse attitudes and challenge stereotypes, for example, by sharing stories that reflect and value the diversity of children’s experiences
Provide resources and activities that challenge gender, cultural and racial stereotyping
Create an ethos of inclusivity and tolerance at your setting where views, faiths, cultures and races are valued
Arrange visits whereby children can engage with the wider community
Encourage children to acquire a tolerance, appreciation and respect for their own and other cultures by discussing with children the similarities and differences between themselves and others; and among families, faiths, communities, cultures and traditions
Share and discuss practices, celebrations and experiences
