  • Identify, celebrate and promote the best integrated early years practice through continually researching, evaluating and reflecting; strengthening transitions and services within and out of the Centre to give our learners the best foundation for learning.
  • Commit ourselves to providing the highest quality learning environment which enables children to thrive and discover through interesting and motivating learning opportunities carefully planned, facilitated, scaffolded and responded to by practioners interacting and playing with them.
