Aims of groups

There is always something exciting going on at Bushy Leaze for you and your child to get involved in.  But we're not just having fun.  This is why we do it....  


The Aims of our Groups / Activities


  • To promote parents' and carers' awareness of children's very early learning and development through making the most of everyday activities and interactions.
  • To support parents and carers in their relationships with their children, so that the children's self esteem will be enhanced.
  • To affirm the crucial role of parents and carers as children's first educators.
  • To support parent and carers in the development of their children's literacy and numeracy.
  • To support parents and carers so that they can encourage the development of positive learning dispositions.

The principals of our centre are to:


  • Value parents' and carers' knowledge and experiences of their children, using this as a starting point and building on it by offering ideas and information.
  • Work with parents as equal partners.
  • Have a non-judgemental approach towards families. This builds on people's strengths, focusing on what they can do, not what they can't.
  • Value diversity, welcoming people from all backgrounds and cultures.
  • Create opportunities for parents to share experiences and ideas in a safe and supportive environment.


This then encourages parents and carers to:


  • Learn together with their children.
  • Have high expectations of what children and adults can achieve together.
