  • Ensuring the child’s individual developmental needs are met.
  • Being the point of contact for the parents if they have any questions.
  • Recording achievements and reflecting upon them.
  • Reviewing and producing progress reports.

Vision

To operate a premium Nursery business that consistently provides exceptional standards of care and education for each child within the Nursery setting. Furthermore, to ensure a sustained capacity for continuous improvement and development through a committed, enthusiastic and highly qualified management and staff team with a goal to constantly improving the outcomes for all of the children in our care.

 

Mission

At My Sunshine Day Nursery we understand and value the importance of Nursery education in its own right and not just in preparation for starting school. We believe that each child is unique and therefore strive to ensure that each child is valued through our warm and nurturing environment, an environment in which each child can flourish, develop a lifelong love of learning and reach their full potential.

 

Ethos

My Sunshine Day Nursery is an independent Nursery dedicated to providing individual care and education for children. We pride ourselves on our family orientated environment in which our parents are also invited to be involved every step of the way. We aim to provide a warm and nurturing environment in which each child can flourish and reach their full potential. We endeavour to support every child in our care in order to ensure they achieve their utmost, develop confidence in their own abilities and a lifetime love of learning.

We recognise the importance of good manners and respect for others and believe that this in itself enables our children to be well prepared for life outside the Nursery environment. We are dedicated to providing the children in our care with a strong foundation for life, and believe that a quality Early Years education provides children with the best opportunity to achieve their full potential both while at the Nursery and in their futures.

During the Early Years children grow, develop and learn more rapidly than at any other time of their lives. We firmly believe that, by paying close attention to what the children tell us and show us, we are able to gain important insights into the minds and to the development of each child. It is clear that by focusing on the child’s strengths, passions and interests, as they emerge, our staff can develop an insight into that child’s potential and ensure that appropriate activities are planned in order to promote and celebrate these abilities.

My Sunshine Day Nursery focuses on nurturing and developing the individual talents inherent in each child which in turn allows them to develop their own self-confidence. We encourage and reward children’s willingness to try new things, to question their knowledge and abilities and more importantly to feel pride in their attempts and to develop an ability to learn from their failures. This approach allows children to develop an analytical mind and build the confidence needed in order to be able to make their own decisions and judgements.

Our Nursery environment is calm and nurturing and the children’s happiness is our always number one priority. Our home-from-home atmosphere enables the children to develop a sense of security and allows them to excel in all areas of their development.
