Our mission is to provide every child, from 3 months to 4years with a quality early childhood experience. We strive to create a safe, nurturing and developmentally appropriate environment which fosters individual needs. Our staff view education as a partnership between children, practitioners and parents. We believe it is essential to develop a good rapport with each child and parent based on open communication and mutual respect. We believe this is the foundation of a successful pre-school experience. We believe in empowering children by offering them opportunities to make decisions and solve problems. It is our goal that children will possess confidence in their abilities and establish lasting relationships with practitioners and peers. By offering an engaging curriculum it is our aspiration that each child will develop a positive outlook towards life, a better appreciation of the world around them and acquire a lifelong love for learning during their time spent at Wharfe Bridge Day Nursery.
Wharfe Bridge Day Nursery aims to ensure all children are included, treated and respected as individuals by offering: A healthy lifestyle by promoting exercise, nutritional knowledge and building a sound foundation for well-being. A safe, stimulating, comfortable environment, by providing high quality care and education implementing a rich, play-based curriculum indoors and outdoors. Fun and enjoyment, by giving each child quality time and attention based on their own personal interests and views. Opportunities to positively engage with society; the chance to be part of their local community. Working in partnership with parents/carers to maximise a child’s potential to learn and develop.
Children at Wharfe Bridge Day Nursery are encouraged to be independent, select the resources they require and make decisions, errors and choices by initiating their own play. We promote kinaesthetic learning through discovery and experience using a planned balance of adult –directed, freely chosen or child-initiated activities. We focus on developing children’s existing skills by building their knowledge using their interests to give them opportunities to engage in play, share and to learn and work together.
A designated adult will be your child’s key person who will bond, relate and form an attachment with your child, helping to develop and boost their self esteem, self reliance and independence by having someone they can depend upon and feel secure with.
Our staff are qualified, experienced positive role models who provide positive interaction and engagement with babies and children. They have excellent observation, supervision and listening skills.
Wharfe Bridge Day Nursery actively promotes and implements anti-discriminatory procedures. We respect individual parenting styles and respect the parent as the primary educator. We are proud of our strong relationships with parents.
