The Queen's Park Early Years Federation relies on various policies and procedures to aid the day to day running of our establishments and to ensure that pupils receive high quality education. A number of these have been made available below. Due to the amount of content, all policies are downloadable for offline reading.
All Policies are available in paper format for parents upon request.
At Dorothy Gardner Centre, Mary Paterson Nursery School and Queens Park Children’s Centre we believe that all children have the right to be treated with equal respect and dignity, regardless of any disabilities or needs that they might have.
The aim of the federation is to offer children a range of experiences which will support their growing understanding of early mathematical concepts, develop their basic skills, and encourage a practical problem-solving approach to and enjoyment of mathematics.
Personal, social and emotional development is critical for very young children in all aspects of their lives and gives them the best opportunity for success in all other areas of learning.
As a federation we believe that high quality learning and teaching in early childhood enables children to become life-long learners and will assist them in reaching their full potential.
Queen’s Park Federation strives to build on children’s natural curiosity by providing first-hand experiences, which give children the opportunity to use their senses, make observations, notice similarities and investigate differences.
At the discretion of the setting, if the child appears recovered and well after spending at least 3 days at home, working parents may bring their child back and staff administer a lunch time dose of antibiotics prescribed by a doctor.
