Creating a brighter future

We’re on a mission!

To make a real difference to families and help to create a brighter world for children. 

Working together

We can create a future where anything is possible!

Living our values

We always act with kindness, thinking about our children, families, team, the wider community and the planet. This is at the heart of all the decisions we make.

 

Our brighter world commitment

To teach children about being kind to each other and our planet through our ‘Go Green curriculum’.

Our Go Green curriculum and climate change related pedagogy builds a wonderful appreciation for the world around us. It also teaches green habits by raising awareness of sustainability and the small changes we can make to help protect the environment. There are 5 focus areas:

  • Reduce
  • Reuse
  • Recycle
  • Respecting wildlife – animals
  • Respecting wildlife – plants

Fun and imaginative Go Green activities, from songs and stories to environmental invitations to play and a host of fun games, are delivered to all children throughout our nursery settings.  

Children love being planet protectors. They help to recycle daily, switch off lights to save energy and get involved in long term projects like building bug hotels and growing foods in our kitchen gardens. Younger children can get involved too, by saving sea creatures as part of water play or by creating earth friendly art with leaves and petals.

A big emphasis is placed on outdoor learning and connecting with nature, complementing our food education programme. Here children have an opportunity to grow fruit and vegetables as well as take part in plant to plate activities which are fantastic ways to promote sustainability.

To provide tasty and nutritious menus, expertly created from ingredients that are kind to animals, people and our planet. 

Our Nursery Kitchen team lovingly select only the best ingredients from farms that share our vision on food origin, animal welfare and sustainability. With a kitchen powered by renewable energy sources, electric vehicles, zero waste to landfill and surplus produce donated to The Felix Project, Nursery Kitchen are glowing with green. 

To support local charities with causes close to our heart, benefiting children’s wellbeing and education.

We are currently supporting Home-Start Essex, a fantastic charity who aim to give children the best possible start in life by supporting parents and caregivers so they feel less isolated, build confidence in themselves and their parenting plus find ways to manage the challenges they face. 

We are proud to assist Home-Start Essex with our expertise in early years education and food and nutrition as well as our time, through team volunteering at local Family Groups and raising awareness with fundraising initiatives.

To source sustainable early years resources from companies that are kinder to our planet, where possible.

We believe in sourcing good quality resources  from companies that care about the same things we do. Our robust approved supplier process ensures our team choose reputable suppliers that share similar people and planet values and offer kinder alternatives for the products we need. 

To think green by minimising waste, using green energy and reducing our carbon footprint in any way we can.

We encourage our team to ‘think green’ in everything they do and to apply this mindset when making decisions. Our Reduce, Recycle, and Upcycle initiatives help minimise waste to landfill and reduce single use plastics. We hold meetings online wherever possible to keep our team off the road and we ensure that deliveries are kept to a minimum. Our aim is to continually improve and look for more ways that we can become greener.

To promote these values and commitments to our team so we are all doing our bit.
