Personal, Social and Emotional Development

ConstructionIt is our intention that, through the caring attitude of the staff, all children will gain an understanding and empathy for others, an asset to all beliefs. Our interest themes encourage children to develop sensitivity toward all living things, and to express their emotions appropriately. Children participate in feeding and caring for our goldfish, learning of their needs and habits. We learn and sing the hymns of other faiths, and share many varied religious festivals with the children. Grace is said before all meals. If any parents are willing to share elements of their own faith with the children at Monkton, we are always grateful for their participation. Children progress through rooms according to age, but also to their stage of development and individual needs.

Children form strong, secure emotional attachments.

Children's behaviour is outstanding.

The sensitive, caring interaction between staff and children ensures that all children form positive and trusting relationships.
