Personal, Social and Emotional Development are not taught in formal activities, but underpins all aspects of nursery.
We have high expectations of children’s behaviour and we respect their choices and ideas. In return we expect children to treat each other and all adults with courtesy and with kindness.
We encourage the development of self-confidence, independence and self-awareness.
As a nursery we cater for social and emotional aspects of learning. We prepare the children for new events and special days, as these can be worrying for young children. Through stories and puppets we deal with issues such as toileting, bedtime routines, sharing, turn taking, birth of siblings and other major issues that affect children in their home life.
