A positive environment is somewhere that is welcoming, reassuring, inclusive, safe and healthy; it is one in which children/young people can learn and develop to their best ability and potential. ILM nursery understands the need for a enabling learning environment for all, therefore we create an environment that helps children to develop a sense of identity, become independent, to have the confidence to learn new skills and to feel a sense of belonging.
Our environment provides for the physical, intellectual, language, emotional and social needs of the child. We take into account the importance of:
We provide consistent, responsive, loving care and education. Our skilled staff act as pillars for security, through our key person approach, building relationships with parents/carers. We are focused on creating an emotional environment emphasising on wellbeing, positive affirmations, empowering and welcoming language.
Behaviour and routine
We create a familiar and established routine and procedures, clear rules and boundaries, predictable routines and behavioural expectations. This allows children to understand and learn about the cause and effect of their behaviour.
The physical environment
ILM Nursery considers indoor and outdoor environments, exploring nature, space, natural light, resources, aesthetics, age appropriate resources and creating a sense of awe and wonder for children.
