Citizenship

Citizenship begins with knowledge of how the world works and an awareness of the links between local and global issues. Children form ideas about who they are and how they fit into the world around them early on. They are already developing attitudes about their own self worth and the worth of others. Hyde n Seek provide opportunities for children to build the skills needed to make a positive contribution in making the world a fairer and more sustainable place.

Global citizenship forms an important part of our good practice in line with current curriculum as it encompasses and develops issues of inclusion and equality. It builds on anti-racist education, multiculturism, gender, human rights and environmental education and offers a specific and unique response to the challenge of poverty.

All of our nurseries are now joined with a citizenship program called Etwinning where we can communicate with children from nurseries all over the world. So far we have had links with nurseries in Spain and Poland. Children have developed pen pals and used SKYPE to video call their friends in Spain.

Testimonials

My daughter, Abigail, started Nyde N Seek when she was 15 months old. I was worried initially as she had never been left with anyone before, however the nursery staff worked with me in setting up a fantastic settling in programme which did just that. She is thriving at nursery. The staff are kind, friendly, very approachable and take the time to really get to know the children and their families which I think is fantastic and helps with the settling in process. Now when Abigail leaves nursery she blows kisses and waves to everyone which i never thought would be possible. They do a variety of activities which are fun and educational. I look forward to picking her up to find out what she has been up to and love being greeted with a handful of drawing and paintings.  I cannot thank all the staff enough for making the settling in process as stress free as possible for both of us and I can go to work knowing that she is in a safe, caring enviroment and is having lots of fun.
