Each child and their home life are completely unique even when there are cultural similarities
to other families. From the first time we meet children we work with them and their parents to learn
as much about their family life as possible. This includes who they live with, the languages they
speak at home or their family’s heritage. This is what makes our nursery so diverse; diverse in
family structure, spoken languages and skin colour and we embrace as much of the children’s cultures
into nursery as we can. We work with families to understand what is important to them, whether it be
festivals, such as Holi, Ramadan or Christmas or their favourite family meal – we will do our best
to reflect it whilst the children are in nursery.
We look after children at such a vital time in their life and we believe that how we talk about
the world around us and the people in it helps create the foundation for acceptance and tolerance of
each other. We weave in the fundamental British Values into our ethos and curriculum and our team are
great role models at embracing diversity.
