- To develop a Nursery community which affords equal value to all its members, is seen to be just and encourages mutual respect, concern for others and truthfulness
- To foster close relationships between the Nursery, children’s homes and the local community
These aims have guided the construction of our schemes of work, aims and various Nursery policies, e.g:
- equal opportunities, differentiation, multicultural and gender;

- health and safety;
- caregiver training and caregiver absence.
By implementing these and other policies, schemes of work, curricular aims and objectives, the Nursery aims can be put into practice.
