Our philosophy – what we do

Our philosophy – what we do

It is the nursery’s aspiration to continue the Froebelian School’s aims and traditions of “giving a flying start to the citizens of tomorrow”.

Our mission is all about “inspiring and enabling young children to reach their true potential through education and play”. We still follow some of the concepts of Freidrich Froebel the German educator, who created the concept of kindergarten and from whom the school and nursery take their name. His theories were all gained from viewing life through a child’s eye and the idea of “creative play”, something which we still aim to do.

We have a distinct educational philosophy, which sets us apart from any other nurseries. The children will still have fun and play, but where we differ, is that we subtly use this to start developing process based learning.

Many of our activities are designed to create opportunities and invitations to learn, both in individual and group situations. It is our intention to ensure that children leaving First Steps have been nurtured to give them a confident head start at school, whether it be at Froebelian or elsewhere.
