Vision and Values

"Together we play, learn and grow"


Statement of Purpose


At Selhurst we see our core purpose as being:

  • to provide a professional, caring environment where all are welcomed, valued and respected
  • to create, within a safe setting, high quality learning opportunities which are fun, exciting and challenging
  • to offer a variety of services to meet the needs of families in our community


We do this by:

  • fostering open communication where the views of all are listened to and respected
  • working in equal partnership with families and carers to meet the needs of children individually
  • reaching out to make services more accessible to families across our diverse community
  • planning learning experiences which allow the freedom to explore and encourage


We all aim:

  • To provide a happy, friendly, secure and stimulating environment where everyone is welcome
  • To work in partnership with parents and carers, sharing our professional understanding with their specialised knowledge of their children’s development
  • To develop positive relationships with adults and children as learning is a shared experience
  • To offer a rich, stimulating, challenging balanced curriculum based on the Early Years Foundation Stage
  • To enable children to experience fun and enjoyment as they learn through play
  • To ensure we identify and make provision for the needs of all children in our care and monitor their progress in all areas of learning
  • To respect and promote understanding and knowledge of our varied religions, cultures and languages so that children develop a sense of wonder together with a spirit of tolerance and understanding
  • To develop our own professional skills and knowledge so we are currently informed about all aspects of working with young children and families
  • To work in partnership with other agencies and professionals to support parents/carers respectfully and effectively
