Our Ethos

At St James' Sapling's we aim to provide the best possible quality care and education for the children at all times in a happy, secure and stimulating environment. By exploring, experimenting and learning through their own play and through the motivation from staff acting as role models, all children are encouraged to reach their full potential in their own time.

All children, irrespective of religion, gender, skin colour or special needs will be welcomed in by all staff, and all children will be treated equally and as individuals encouraging autonomy and self-worth.

The children are provided with a variety of equipment and materials appropriate to their levels of learning, encouraging them to make their own choices. The nursery follows the guidelines and statutory requirements for The Early Years Foundation Stage incorporating all areas of learning in the planning and teaching of an appropriate curriculum.
