KTB Kids Value Statement

KTB Kids is an independent business venture developed from a passion to provide exceptional standards of early year’s education.

We place happiness and well being at the centre of practice and ensure children feel safe in a positive and nurturing environment. Through our creative and innovative curriculum, children, rich with wonder and knowledge and full of potential, are empowered to become independent, confident and emotionally intelligent individuals.

Inspired by the childhood centre of Reggio Emilia in Italy, we harness children’s natural curiosity and creativity through open ended resources; a child led approach and supporting sustained shared thinking. Children are not seen as empty vessels that require filling with facts, our educators recognise that children are driven by their interests to understand and know more, and are competent and capable of building their own theories.

With the ultimate vision of supporting children in their early year’s education to become happy, resilient, respectful and fulfilled adults, throughout our nursery we have strong values of respect, empathy, freedom and democracy.

We offer learning that encompasses children’s mental, moral and social development, where children are listened to, and given time to explore their feelings, ideas and theories.

“In the Reggio Emilia Preschool each child is viewed as infinitely capable, creative, and intelligent. The job of the teacher is to support these qualities and to challenge children in appropriate ways.”

Louise Boyd Cadwell
