Chapel St’s family services are built on the following core convictions and commitments:
We will appoint a ‘Key Person’ to work with each child and family to ensure that they receive the necessary educational input and developmental support to fulfill their plan.
We will encourage children to take a lead in their learning, teaching them to work with and learn from each another.
We will regularly invite parents to participate in educational activities, share in their children’s learning, benefit from parenting support and volunteer for additional activities.
We will utilise a range of professionals alongside teachers and Family Development Workers to enhance the education, training and support provided for children and their families.
We will value play as an essential aspect of the learning process; ensuring that children have fun in the nursery and helping parents to take fun home.
We will encourage and unlock creativity and imagination in children and parents, enabling them to explore new ways of thinking and learning.
We will work with children and parents to design sustainable and creative environments shaped for and by their learning.
We will recognise the unique assets and resources of the local community and build extra capacity by partnering with local people, groups and services wherever possible.
We will work with relevant agencies to develop healthy living initiatives with children and families.
We will celebrate the growth and achievements of children and their families.
