The early years foundation stage ( EYFS )
Promoting British Values at BrightStar Day Nursery
At BrightStar Day Nursery the British values are incorporated and demonstrated through EYFS learning and play.
•Mutual Respect and tolerance for others
•The rule of law
Democracy is about everyone being treated equally and having equal rights. We encourage this in our children through sharing and group decision making.
Mutual respect and tolerance for others is about teaching our children to understand and appreciate each other’s differences. It’s about being a part of a community where not everyone is the same and forming relationships within that without discrimination.
The rule of law is about ensuring children in our early years setting understand that rules are important and teach them right from wrong.
We teach them that there are boundaries and consequences, and that their feelings and behaviour should be managed to fit within these boundaries.
Individual liberty is about teaching our children to understand and value their own self and build their confidence in making choices. Self-esteem, self-confidence and self-awareness are important and we teach this within the EYFS framework.
It is important that we teach children that it is possible to live peacefully as each of them are value members of our multicutural world.
