Tip Top Day Nursery recognises the role we have in promoting the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs as defined by the Government’s 2011 Prevent Strategy.
These values are promoted through the delivery of activities that promote and develop children’s personal, social and emotional skills.
We ensure children have a voice and their ideas are paid attention to. Children are encouraged to be confident to share their ideas, thoughts and thinking. Children are encouraged to be active decision makers and make choices throughout their nursery day.
The Rule of Law
We have high expectations of our children and encourage them to understand how to behave and work alongside others. Children (age appropriate) are involved in deciding what rules are appropriate in nursery, why these are important and what happens when rules are broken.
We provide a safe and supported environment where children are given the opportunity to make their own choices and decisions about their own learning. Children are encouraged to follow their own interests and staff celebrate children’s individuality.
Staff encourage children to develop a positive attitude towards others, respecting each other’s individuality. Staff model positive, caring and polite behaviour towards the children, staff, parents and visitors. Staff create a harmonious environment where children celebrate each other’s achievements and respect each other’s ideas.
Tolerance of those of different Faiths and Beliefs
Throughout the Nursery year we provide opportunities for children to participate in a range of celebrations which aim to enhance children’s understanding of different faiths and beliefs.
