THE HONEY BEE


THE FIRST TEACHER

 

We respect that parents are their children’s first educators and we hugely invest in parental partnership. Parents and carers are welcome to participate at the nursery and we actively encourage an open and respectful relationship between practitioners and our children’s families. We provide many opportunities for families to come into our preschool and support their children’s learning.

PARENT’S ROLE

Our Ethos and values

 

At the Honey Bee we believe children are unique and individual and deserve to be loved, cherished and nurtured.

It is the staff that add the special magic to your children’s day and therefore practitioners are specially selected to care for and educate your children on a daily basis in the best possible way and to make their earliest years the happiest ones.

All practitioners hold an enhanced DBS check (police check), hold at least a level 3 childcare qualification and are trained in pediatric first aid and safeguarding/child protection. Through ongoing professional development, we are committed to sustaining a workforce of highly qualified and knowledgeable practitioners. These dedicated staff understand child development and use their knowledge to provide stimulating and educational activities that inspire, challenge and fascinate the children.


Through play, our professional, dedicated and caring practitioners promote each individual child’s learning and interests. We take inspiration from a variety of different perspectives including the Forest School approach. We give our children regular opportunities to explore and learn outdoors in the natural environment and use a secure, community garden in which activities take place. Outdoor play also supports children’s problem-solving skills and nurtures their creativity, as well as providing rich opportunities for their developing imagination, inventiveness and resourcefulness. 



Quality
We believe that attaining and maintaining high quality measures in all

aspects of our provision is a key differentiator that sets us ahead of our competition.


Adaptable
Creating an adaptable environment based on individual children needs makes it highly conducive to achieving learning outcomes

 Unique

Our environment and methods reorganise unique child attributes and thus work collaboratively to accommodate those differences. We celebrate variations yet nurture British Values.

Learning
Creating engaging and personalized learning journey is one of the first and foremost actions we take to ensure all children would reach preset learning goals.

 Inclusive
Creating an inclusive practice that is supportive to children with special education needs.


Training
We leverage on our CACHE Centre that had been training and educating Early Years practitioners in our settings and elsewhere.  We have many students and graduates who successfully completed  level 3 Diplomas in Early Years.

Youth
Recognising the importance of the foundation stage in the lives of youth, we strive to equip children with the care, education and skills they need to prepare them for their next stages.
