To provide a safe home away from home and to encourage children to take a growing responsibility for their own quality learning and behaviour and to achieve this with a christian emphasis, in partnership with the family.
At Christopher & Robin we will
- Nurture and provide a warm, caring environment for each child.
- Encourage a child's family to engage in their care and education as a co-operative venture.
- Contribute to the child feeling in control of his or her own learning.
- Expose the child to a wide range of expressive media to develop the spontaneous joy of successful learning.
- Equip the child with strategies of "how to learn" including the confidence to take risks.
- Allow the child time to reflect in order to achieve quality.
