Equal Opportunities


At Little Haven we welcome diversity and consider it a valuable contribution to a positive learning experience. We believe that equal opportunity is a fundamental in developing a high quality early years curriculum. We protect the rights of each child and consider it essential to ensure that no one in our setting is disadvantaged on the grounds of race, gender, language, ability or culture.

We ensure that there are no discriminatory practices in our setting and try to counteract the negative discriminatory practices that sadly may be experienced in the wider community. We have the same high expectations of all our children we encourage them to be caring, confident and assertive in establishing their own identity.
