Our Philosophy

At The Red Squirrel we take a multifaceted approach, drawing inspiration from a range of sources – from Reggio Emilia to Forest Schools.

We take a holistic view of every child's development and see them as an individual with their own unique potential.

Our dedicated and passionate staff recognise the importance of childhood and its impact on adulthood.

We recognise that play is an essential aspect of children’s learning and development.

We provide a safe and secure, but challenging learning environment that is stimulating and encourages investigation and curiosity.

We involve the children in age appropriate activities that promote independence and responsibility as well as building self esteem and confidence.

We provide access to a range of materials, both indoors and outdoors that promote children’s choice and opportunities for open ended play and creative experiences.

We work in close partnership with parents and carers and recognise the importance of family and the community to a child’s wellbeing.

We strongly believe in the benefits of outdoor learning and allow children to experience the wonder of nature while learning in an exciting, inspirational and rewarding environment.

We take an ecological view of ourselves and the environment.
