Personal and Social Development
Merryvale Nursery encourages all children to have a caring sharing attitude towards staff and peers. The nursery is divided into small family groups within their age groups. All children are encouraged to care for things around them both inside and outside the nursery, to be sympathetic to others needs, look after toys etc.
They are encouraged to have personal independence, e.g. in dressing and hygiene, work independently, and take initiative and to concentrate and persevere. We also like to encourage an awareness of right and wrong.
There is praise for each child’s achievements and the opportunity to display his/her work in order to promote high self- esteem. We have numerous reward schemes throughout the nursery, encouraging children to persevere and develop.
