The Principles at Clopton Nursery Trust

Home / The Principles at Clopton Nursery Trust


We believe that:

  • Parents are the first and main educators of children in the early years.
  • A good relationship should be established with parents/carers to maintain continuity of a child’s development.
  • All children should be respected and their individual ability and potential recognised, valued and nurtured.
  • Children should be offered a caring and secure environment where they are given freedom of choice and opportunity to experiment and explore. This encourages confidence and self-reliance as well as stimulating their ability to learn.
  • The curriculum is appropriate for the developmental stage of individual children, allowing them to progress at their own pace, moving on only when they are ready.
  • Everyone at the Nursery is committed to providing equality and opportunity for all who wish to participate in activities.

The Nursery will:

  • Provide high quality care and education for children below statutory school age.
  • Work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop.
  • Add to the life and well-being of its local community.
  • Offer children and their parents a service which promotes equality and values diversity.

  • Is in a Nursery which sees you as a partner in helping them to learn and develop.
  • In a Nursery where parents help to shape the service it offers.
