THE team at KIDDIWINKS ARE UNITED IN THEIR BELIEF THAT:
All children are individuals
All children are respected and valued
All children can reach their full potential
In our pre-school we develop a happy, loving and secure environment to promote a positive experience.
We create a stimulating and challenging environment that provides a foundation for future learning. All children are respected, their individuality and potential recognised, valued and nurtured helping to develop a positive self-image. Activities and resources offer children the opportunities to develop in an environment free from prejudice and discrimination. Through encouraging social behaviour we help children develop consideration and tolerance for others, leading to happy and positive relationships with other children and with adults.
We recognise that the development of children varies and each child has a key person who works with both your child and the parent/carer to ensure that each individual experience with Kiddiwinks is a quality one. Some children have a special need and we seek to meet these needs by offering help and support to both the child and the parent. We maintain a high ratio of adults to children in order to ensure generous care and education.
We are Ofsted registered and are regularly inspected for our quality and care. At our last inspection we achieved 'Good' Ofsted judgement. We follow guidelines for child protection under the Children's Act and are registered under the Data Protection Act.
