Religious and Cultural Festivals

Statement of intent

Our setting is committed to valuing diversity.

Aim

We aim to embrace learning opportunities from many sources.

Methods

The nursery is not associated with a specific religion and encourages children of any race or religion. We respect all aspects of their cultures and seize upon different traditions and festivals as a valuable shared learning experience.

We regularly celebrate the following festivals:

 

Harvest

Thanksgiving

Diwali

Hannukah

Christmas

Chinese New Year

Mother’s Day

Eid

Easter

 

In addition, should a child attend the nursery , whose family celebrate festivals other than those already stated, the nursery staff will  take this  opportunity to develop their own religious awareness , as they consult with the child’s parents about possible ways to celebrate the festival and develop awareness and respect for their faith within the nursery environment.
