Personal and Social Development


We recognise that each child is unique and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.

We aim to:

  • Ensure children feel safe and protected. That they feel valued and secure within the centre environment and to develop a feeling of trust.
  • Help children be independent and able to select activities and resources and develop their own ideas.
  • Develop children to show awareness and respect for the needs and feelings of themselves and others.
  • Ensure that children can express their feelings and opinions freely but in an appropriate way and respond appropriately to others.
  • Teach children to treat materials, equipment, their work and the work of others with respect, care and concern.
  • Encourage children to ask adults and peers for help and support when needed.
  • Develop self-reliance in children when caring for their personal needs.
  • Help children to differentiate between acceptable and unacceptable behaviours and to learn to behave in appropriate ways.
  • Teach children to negotiate with each other.
  • Ensure that children respect other cultures and beliefs and respect the rights of other children.
  • Support our children to respond positively to adults and form relationships with adults and peers.
  • Ensure our children can make choices without fear of stereotyping/bias.
  • Value our children’s background and family.
