We will ensure that our setting is fully inclusive in meeting the needs of all children.

  • Provide a secure and accessible environment in which all of our children can flourish and in which all contributions are considered and valued.
  • Include and value the contribution of all families to our understanding of equality and diversity.
  • Provide positive non-stereotyping information about gender roles, diverse family structures, diverse ethnic and cultural groups, children with additional needs and disabled people.
  • Improve our knowledge and understanding of issues of anti-discriminatory practice, promoting equality and valuing diversity.
  • Challenge and eliminate discriminatory actions.
  • Make inclusion a thread that runs through all of the activities of the setting.
  • Foster good relations between all communities.

2yr old funding

As a setting we deliver the Early Years Entitlement for 2 year olds – if you think you may be eligible visit lincolnshire.gov.uk.

We run specialist 2 year old sessions on a Tuesday and Thursday morning.  These are slightly shorter and a smaller size than our mixed age sessions and have a high adult/child ratio.  Each child is enabled to explore & learn about the Pre-School environment, develop relationships with staff & each other and become comfortable & secure at their own pace.  As they become ready for more challenges we move them in small friendship groups into the older, larger and longer sessions.
