Working in partnership with families is integral to all we do, building a spirit of warmth and respect between families, children and their educators provide the best outcomes for the child. We also encourage families to participate in the planning, development and evaluation of the service.
Our ambition is that for families, children and educators, our services provide a nurturing environment that is safe, homely and supportive sSpace where everyone feels welcome and have a sense of ownership and belonging. We prefer to use natural products where possible as a preference to create a harmonious, calming environment.
We aim to nurture a generation of "Green Thumbs" by encouraging the children to maintain our vegetable gardens outside and our beautiful plants inside.
Our children take great pleasure in reaping the rewards by cooking and eating their produce. Our chefs have seasonal, rotating menus that provide 50% of the children's nutritional requirements everyday.
