At Playworks our vision is to support every child in all aspects of health and wellbeing, learning and development, to gain skills they can use and transfer throughout their whole life. We believe every child deserves high quality care and that they have the right to play, explore and extend their knowledge and individual interests, at their own pace. Adults will provide the appropriate amount of support, encouragement and challenge required to reach their full potential and be all they can be.
We believe that all children deserve to be protected from harm, nurtured, inspired and celebrated for their individuality. We help them to assess and measure risk to make beneficial judgement around safety. We strive to reinforce the values for learning, fairness, compassion and honesty.
We hold the diversity of the beliefs, cultures and lifestyles of our children’s families, and the communities in which they live, in very high regard; we respect and acknowledge them all equally.
The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, Article 31, is at the heart of our values, it states:
‘Every child should have the right to rest, leisure, play and recreation and to take part in cultural and artistic activities’
