As part of our commitment to the Early Years Foundation Stage, we see parentsas partners in children’s learning. Parents are children’s first educators and we know that a welcoming atmosphere with good communication between parents and the school is vital for children’s development. We value the feedback we receive from all our stakeholders. They are a vital tool for British Orchard Nursery to see what weare excelling in, to be able to provide feedback to the staff and so that we have the opportunity to develop the school and add to/alter things.
Our aim is to provide each child with well thought-out opportunities to develop his/her potential within a nurturing and safe environment. We do this through positive reinforcement and modelling. This contributes to a curriculum which fosters a sense of awe and wonder, inspiring children to start their learning journey with a strong sense that learning is a life-long enjoyable endeavour.
