West Worthing Childcare provides high quality care
for young people drawing inspiration from the Reggio Emilia approach.
We are registered to care for 3 children under the age of 5 and 6
children in total under 8 years of age. Our home based setting is
conveniently situated close to Tarring Park, 10 minutes walk away from
West Worthing station and within walking distance of the beach.
PHILOSOPHY & APPROACH
West Worthing Childcare is inspired by the Reggio
Emilia approach. Children are seen as strong, powerful and competent
individuals, holding their own values, being worthy of respect as well
as being respectful towards others. We encourage children to develop
their own theories about the world and great value is placed upon the
ideas and opinions they express. Young people are free to choose how
they spend their time and indoor and outside learning environments are
both available for use.
In Reggio education there is no pre-determined early years curriculum.
We aim to facilitate a self-directed style of learning by nurturing
children's innate curiosity and creativity. At West Worthing Childcare
we genuinely believe that children learn best when they are encouraged
to be active participants in their own journey of discovery. This is
achieved by providing a wide range of experiences which stimulate
imagination, exploration, and children’s creative endeavours.
At West Worthing Childcare we work in accordance with the EYFS
providing all the benefits of a nursery in a home environment. We
strive to get to know each child individually and build the bonds
which lead to secure attachment relationships.
Partnership with parents
We deeply respect the role that parents play as
primary educators and the most enduring care givers in their
children’s life. At West Worthing Childcare we want to develop a close
relationship with you so we can ensure we are truly meeting your child
and your family's needs. We welcome the exchange of information and
open communication so we always make time to talk at the beginning and
end of each day.
When you are considering the various childcare options available it is
vital to ensure that potential providers are on the same wavelength as
you. West Worthing Childcare is especially well suited to families who
follow a gentle, attachment parenting approach. Ideally you will visit
a number of settings before making your final choice. If you would
