We treat each child as an individual and provide the opportunity for them to progress and grow through planned, purposeful play.

We encourage a healthy lifestyle through plenty of outdoor play and a fruit or vegetable based snack.
We are an inclusive nursery and encourage respect and cooperation, by creating a warm and strong partnership with our children and parents. We strive to continuously improve by being reflective and responsive to everyone's needs.
We believe that a child's nursery experience must be one where play experiences are planned, purposeful and build on children's interests and achievements.
We believe that creating a nurturing learning environment is the best way to encourage a strong sense of self-accomplishment in young children.
We believe children are best supported when parents and staff work together; working in close partnership with parents and other adults in a child's life; we ensure that Jordans Village Nursery School is a happy and nurturing place for all.
We believe children need to be respected in order to respect.
We believe in lifelong learning. It is important to provide staff with training and development opportunities so they, in turn, can provide the children with effective, learning experiences.
We believe it is crucial to foster links with our local community, accessing local resources so the children develop a sense of connection and belonging.
