We have a commitment to building positive relationships whilst working in partnership with parents/carers and we work closely with other agencies to ensure that the children in our care are receiving the best possible start to life.
Here at New Beginnings we cherish every child we care for, from six weeks old until they leave for school.
We know that the care and education we provide is not just a solid foundation for school, but a foundation for life.
Along with yourselves, providing the best possible care is extremely important to us. Our early years practitioners work together to provide a stimulating curriculum to encourage your child’s development every step of the way.
We love having input from you! Your wishes as parents are very important to us. We’ll maintain your child’s Learning Journey with observations, photos and art work, keeping you up-to- date with their progress.
Our curriculum is based on the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) (DfE March 2012) and we are committed to upholding and providing the standards this sets out. Our aim is to exceed these wherever possible.
The EYFS places great value on children’s ability and opportunity to learn through play and we believe children learn best when they are happily engaged in play that interests, stimulates and challenges them.
Through play, exploration and investigation children learn and develop in all areas. Play helps them fit into the world physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially, and grow to be healthy and competent individuals.
New Beginnings provide children with a stimulating environment; where playing and learning go hand in hand and positive relationships are forged. The staff team ensure that provision is made for each individual child’s unique and specific needs and abilities.
Teaching British values is an integral part of the early years, it is a requirement of the EYFS and, as part of Ofsted’s inspections, early years providers are now inspected on how these
values are promoted and taught within the setting. New Beginnings promote British values by:
• Promoting British values as defined by DfE – which are already embedded in our day- to-day work with children
• Teaching children more about the world in which they live and developing their understanding of life in modern Britain.
