"The best for every child and family"


At the Nursery we aim:

  • To ensure that at all times there is an understanding and commitment by everyone that "every child and family matters" and that practitioners work collaboratively within an equality and diversity framework
  • To challenge children to be the best they can be, to make good progress in all aspects of their learning and development and to make a positive contribution to the learning communities of which they are part
  • To provide an environment that reflects the specific needs of individuals, supporting their interests, promoting their engagement and raising their expectations
  • To promote the welfare of all children an and ensure they are safeguarded from harm
  • To ensure the ethos, imagery and language used in the Nursery are user-friendly (in regards to gender, culture etc)
  • To promote healthy lifestyles
  • To ensure a smooth transition for all children
  • To promote the Nursery School within the local community and within Northampton
  • To establish links with providers within the local community and Countywide in order to share good practice and expertise
