Our Philosophy

Here at Leaps & Bounds we aim to take advantage of the teachable moments that happen every day by encouraging the intellectual, creative, social, emotional and physical growth and development of our children and to ensure a lifelong commitment to learning. 

We believe that an inclusive, stable, safe, healthy and comfortable environment is crucial to a child's growth and allows them to develop and flourish through exploratory and imaginative play. This is whilst being supported by staff who expand and challenge their learning, helping children to become independent learners who can think critically and problem solve. 

We contribute to building and sustaining our community by providing a high quality and innovatively delivered childcare service which respond to the needs of individual children and their families as well as the community as a whole.

We will work closely will families to provide a caring co-operative family orientated Preschool environment which promotes cultural values and supports positive relationships and respectful interactions.

Our Aims

- for children to be emotionally resilient and physically healthy to enable them to achieve positive dispositions to learning and develop characteristics of effective learning.

-for children to experience a broad and varied curriculum with exciting opportunities to encourage a love of learning and develop skills to support future learning.

-for children to communicate effectively using an ever increasing vocabulary that will enable them to collaborate with others and achieve social mobility.

 

-for children to engage within the local community, allowing them to develop an understanding of the immediate and wider sense of self and belonging.

Our aims are developed through interactive experiences within the learning environment and interactions with significant adults and peers. Our curriculum of intent works alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage and Characteristics of Effective Learning.
