The Painting: Sue’s nursery
Artist: Cristina Rodriguez
I took part in a charity trek in aid of Cancer Research UK in memory of my Mum. Whilst on the trek I met a young Columbian artist, Cristina Rodriguez. We spent a lot of time together talking about our lives and dreams along with many other things. I told her of my hopes and aspirations for my new business and when we returned from the trek she agreed to do a painting to hang on the wall of the nursery.
I truly feel that the painting tells a story and encompasses the ethos of the nursery in a very simple and honest way.
Ethos of the Nursery
The setting’s Ethos states “Every Child Matters”. This is achieved through the strong relationships that the nursery builds with parents/carers and other professionals. These relationships ensure that the support children receive is personalised to meet their individual needs and interests.
Claremont Neighbourhood Nursery believes that communication for ALL children has a high priority and staff have received training to support them. They are encouraged to model appropriate language at ALL times.
Training has also been delivered to all our staff in respect of the importance of the outdoor environment. We therefore believe that children should have continuous access to the outdoor environment regardless of the weather.
