ELC – Vision, Values & Aims

Our Vision

At Blackwood Primary ELC we strive to establish a caring, nurturing and stimulating environment which encourages creativity and curiosity and recognises each child as an individual, enabling them to attain and achieve.


Our Values – F.R.E.D

Our values are central to all aspects of life in the nursery. We work together as a team with staff, children and parents and carers to embed these values across all aspects of life in the Nursery and the wider community.

F is for Friendship

To build positive relationships with other children and adults within the nursery and school.

R is for Respect

To work together to value everyone in our nursery and the school and become responsible citizens.

E is for Equality

To understand that everyone is equal and should receive the same opportunities and support as required.

D is for Determination

To believe in yourself to be the best that you can even if things are difficult.


Our Aims

We aim to:

  • Provide a safe, supportive and nurturing learning environment which builds resilience and where every child is valued and respected as an individual.
  • Create an enabling environment, both indoors and outdoors, which encourages creativity, curiosity and inquiry through the use of real-life and natural resources.
  • Deliver a curriculum which offers high quality, open ended and challenging experiences where adults sensitively intervene to support and facilitate children’s learning.
  • Embed the development of Literacy, Numeracy and Health and Wellbeing naturally within children’s play experiences.
  • Build positive partnerships with our parents/carers, other professionals and the wider community to support children in their learning and development.
