- Todmorden Children's Centre enables children to have rich and stimulating experiences, the learning environment is arranged in a way to make this possible.
- All staff will build on what children already know and can do; we encourage child led experiences and focus on the child as an individual.
- Our highly qualified Early Years Practitioners observe and respond appropriately to every child.
- Positive relationships with parents and carers are paramount and we ensure all parents, carers and children feel included, secure and valued.
