HAPPY AND SECURE
At Explorers at Sundorne we feel that your child’s happiness, safety and well-being is paramount. We provide a friendly, happy, secure and professional environment and welcoming atmosphere, where children feel safe and can learn and explore the world through play. You will find our fully trained team, caring and enthusiastic people, who understand the importance of your child’s individual needs. We welcome and value all families within our provision, and promote positive attitudes towards disability, ethnic, cultural and social diversity.
As parents ourselves we understand that parents/carers are children’s first and enduring educators, we appreciate when parents and practitioners work in partnership in our setting, the outcomes positively influence children’s development and learning. We feel it is important for effective communication between parents/carers and practitioners to ensure that information, knowledge and expertise is shared appropriately. We provide many opportunities for parents/carers to be involved with their children’s education and play an active role within our nursery.
THE EARLY YEARS FOUNDATION STAGE (EYFS)
We follow the EYFS, which is a legal framework for children aged from birth to five years. It sets out the legal requirements relating to learning, development and safeguarding and welfare requirements.
We welcome all children and are committed to eliminating discrimination and encouraging diversity and inclusion among our staff, families and children. We endeavour to make sure that we provide appropriate provision to enhance the setting and cater for the needs of all children enabling them to enjoy a full part in the daily life at the setting.
All Children and families will be helped and encouraged to develop their full potential and the talents and resources of the setting (including signposting to appropriate agencies) will be fully utilised to maximise enabling environments and early intervention and support. At Explorers we are committed to following the recommendations and guidelines of the SEND Code of Practice and Disability act 2010. The Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage. The Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014.
