Duke Street Nursery School

"Our children and families are at the heart of everything that we do"

Ethos and Values

Duke Street Nursery is a very special place where children, practitioners and families come together to achieve their very best. This is achieved through our very strong vision which is shared and celebrated. Our vision comprises of the following: 

'All children are loved like our own' Children are loved and nurtured to ensure high levels of emotional wellbeing are achieved. We know that young children need to feel safe and secure in order to learn. We cuddle them, rock them to sleep, wipe their little noses and tune in to their individuality.

'Strong relationships are fostered' Relationships are highly valued and respected. Not just with the children, but with our incredible families too. When children join our nursery, they join our family- a place of respect, support and understanding. 

'All children are able to succeed' We see the strengths in every single child and celebrate the way in which they are unique. We meet children at their starting points and use our exciting and interactive curriculum to ensure progress in development is made following children's interests and ideas. 

'Equal Opportunity means a flexible approach' All children are individual and need different approaches to meet their needs. This means thinking 'outside of the box' and being creative- always having the child's best interests at heart.

'Strong Community links' Duke Street Nursery School is at the heart of the Chorley Community. Many families return to us again and again. We support the local community with fundraising and events. We teach our children to respect and value the world which they are in and spread kindness and joy. 

'Experts in child development' Highly experienced practitioners know how to support young children to develop. Duke Street Nursery School is forward thinking and is the first to lead the way in Early Years.
