About Us

Your Child Is in Great Hands


Our Philosophy

Play-based learning is the methodology used to underpin the curriculum for all year groups at Laurel Kidz. The rationale behind embracing this philosophy is multi-faceted; however, primarily we want every child to be motivated, engaged and independent in their learning. Research tells us that play is vital in Early Childhood as it allows children to make sense of their world and encourages active learning.

Active learning is something which helps children to develop some of the skills they will need throughout their school and adult lives. For example, they can practice social and language skills, challenge themselves in physical activities, experiment and think creatively and develop a sense of their own identity. We provide surroundings where children can explore and discover and where their natural curiosity, creativity and imagination are cultivated. As teachers, we are committed to providing a safe and stimulating environment where children can explore with confidence. Teachers will act as positive role-models, available to encourage and extend children’s play and to encourage more complex thinking. Children will be treated as individuals and as such, each will follow an individualised learning plan which will be continuously reviewed by their teacher, following ongoing observations.

Together, we are preparing today’s children for tomorrow’s world. This will be possible if we work collectively, providing a warm, happy and caring community in which to enable our children to flourish.

At Laurel Kidz We Believe

  • In every child’s potential and individuality, hence instruction is individualised to meet each child’s needs.

  • That play is a crucial element in any child’s development. When working with young children, the exchange between adults and children should be fluid, moving interchangeably between activities initiated by children and where adult responses help build the child’s learning and understanding.

  • In ensuring that our environment is safe, clean, stimulating, and provides a warm atmosphere at all times.

  • That every child should have access to a stimulating outdoor learning space.

  • In understanding that parents are the primary educators of their children and should be centrally involved in their child’s experiences and development.

  • In incorporating current research-based practice in our learning activities.

  • In learning communities, where continuing staff training and open communication amongst staff, parents, children, and communities are promoted.

  • In encouraging positive dispositions in every child to enable them to have: confidence, self-esteem, creativity, self-motivation, curiosity, concentration, openness/risk-taking, optimism, honesty, self-discipline, responsibilities, empathy, and teamwork.

  • In promoting Indian Cultural Values to every child who resides in India.

  • In diversity, equality, inclusion, and in treating all others with respect.
