We believe that children need to feel safe and secure in their environment before they can
learn and grow. Our initial emphasis is on the development of a strong relationship with each
child, building trust and respect by showing them that we care and are interested in what
they have to say.

We believe that each child is an individual and is unique, and will therefore develop at a
different pace. Our goal is to facilitate each of their specific developmental needs. We will
provide a wide range of activities covering all of the key developmental aspects such as
social, emotional, creative, physical and intellectual.
Highly trained staff will constantly supervise the children at play ensuring that each of them
is gaining the optimal learning experience and, if necessary, provide them with further
challenges once their goals have been achieved.

We believe that children learn best through play and social interaction. Through appropriate
role modelling and positive reinforcement, we will encourage the children to become as
independent as possible. This will be accomplished using self help skills, verbal problem
solving, and open ended activities.

We have an open door policy, and welcome parent participation. We strongly encourage all
children to develop an acceptance and understanding of each other and will encourage parents
to share any special talents, interests, hobbies or family traditions with us.

We believe that continuity of care is of the utmost importance and, as such, will endeavour
to provide our staff with the very best of facilities, training, and remuneration packages
that is possible.
