The Four Principles

four-priciplesThese are what the staff and setting integrate into their daily practice.

  • A Unique Child – This is based on the principle that every child is a competent learner and can be resilient, capable and confident.
  • Positive Relationships – This highlights the importance of children having loving and secure relationships with parents and carers, in order to become strong and independent.
  • Enabling Environments – This recognises the key role a child’s environment plays in supporting and extending their development and learning.
  • Learning and Development – This is based on the knowledge that children develop and learn in different ways and that all areas of learning are interconnected and equally important.
