Nursery School: General Info
We offer a rich indoor and outdoor environment within which we encourage the children’s enjoyment of learning and their desire to investigate and question, whilst ensuring the safeguarding and welfare of all children. We follow the principles and guidance of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), emphasising developing the children’s unique and individual potential as active learners, and provide a broad, stimulating and balanced curriculum. The children have free-flow access to a garden.
For more information on the EYFS and the curriculum we offer, visit http://www.foundationyears.org.uk/eyfs-statutory-framework/
The teaching of British Values is an integral part of our ethos and values at Dorking Nursery School and Children's Centre where all members of our community are respected, valued and given space to express themselves.
There are 4 key threads that we promote to ensure the children have a vareity of experiences and opportunities which will prepare them for future life in Modern Britain, these are:-
Democracy - children having views, valuing each other, talking about feelings, turn taking, sharing, working together and developing enquiring minds
Rule of law - managing feelings and behaviour, consequences, learning right from wrong, rules
Individual liberty - developing confidence, self-worth, self-esteem, taking risks, talk about differences
Mutual respect and tolerance - learning about how you want to be treated, similarities/differences (families, faiths, community, culture).
