Devizes Pre-school have our own set of Principles and Values we follow as our work ethos:



·  The welfare of the children is paramount

·  Practitioners contribute to the children’s care, education and learning, and this is reflected in every aspect of practice and service provision.

·  Practitioners work with parents and families who are partners in the care, development and learning of their children and are the child’s first and most enduring educators.



·  The needs, rights and views of the child are at the centre of all practice and provision

·  Individuality, difference and diversity are equally valued and celebrated

·  Equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice are actively promoted

·  Children’s personal and physical safety is safeguarded whilst allowing for risk and challenge as appropriate to the capabilities of the child

·  Self–esteem, resilience and positive self-image are recognized as essential to every child’s development

·  Confidentiality and agreements about confidential information are respected as appropriate unless a child’s protection and well-being are at stake.

·  Professional knowledge, skills and values are shared appropriately in order to enrich the experience of children more widely

·  Best practice requires reflection and a continuous search for improvement.
