Our mission and childcare approach

Our mission is to provide a childcare service that prepares your child for the future.

To encourage children, through play, to explore life in a safe and secure environment. Building your child’s confidence, self-respect and respect for others remains an integral part of our approach.

We endeavor to promote learning through play-based teaching which promotes the 7 areas of learning. We take a child centered approach to learning which means looking at what we offer through the eyes of your child and are guided by what inspires and motivates them, listening to the child’s voice.

We believe children learn best in a relaxed, homely environment where they feel emotionally and physically safe where every child makes the most of their abilities. We know children develop at different rates using both indoor and outdoor areas, and by treating them as an individual we believe children will thrive and become ‘school ready’.

We believe this approach will have a positive impact on early childhood experiences.

Children will become strong, confident, independent explorers of the world around them.

They’ll be inspired by their own imagination, to think critically, to resolve problems, to be accepting of all others, and have the confidence to discuss their own views.

At Positive Steps Day care, we take the safety of our children very seriously. After all, no job is more important than keeping a parent’s child safe. In addition to this we have a door entry system on all external and internal doors. Access can only be gained from the front of the building, entry onto the nursery premises can only be gained by parents/carers or members of staff. You will proceed to the entrance doors, at this point you will have to ring the door bell and the door will be answered to you by a member of staff within the nursery.

Our commitment to safeguarding all children, not only those within our care, is at the heart of our approach to early years education. We feel it is of the utmost importance to provide support and guidance for our parents and families, as well as our employees, to help signpost you to the correct advice and pathways, should you have any concerns about a child’s welfare.
