Vision

Nurture, Develop and Inspire our children to achieve academic, behavioural and moral excellence, allowing them to live as happy, successful individuals.

Aims and Objectives

Edenfield Nursery was established in pursuance of academic excellence bound by a strong moral ethos. The ethos of the nursery is founded upon identifying and nurturing the skills and talents of individual children and to assist and encourage them to realise their full potential and to understand how they can contribute to their communities as well-equipped British citizens. We promote social responsibility, tolerance and inclusion for all.

We are committed to providing the highest quality of educational provision for all our children - which will enable them to reach their full potential and attain the levels of knowledge, understanding and skills that British and International society demands for their future lives. Edenfield Nursery is built upon 4 pillars:

  1. Achieve the highest standards in education, behaviour and morals.
  2. Create a safe, caring, inclusive and stimulating environment that is well organised and comprehensively resourced to facilitate effective learning.
  3. Provide opportunities to develop social skills (communication, listening, manners, helping, sharing, following directions etc.) to enable children to work with the diverse groups British society is composed of, and to demonstrate a caring attitude towards others and the world around them
  4. Develop a partnership with parents and the wider community to provide the best for their children, both in their learning and character development
