Equal Opportunities Policy

I will make sure that I actively promote equal of oportunity and anti-discriminatory practices for all children. I will ensure that I treat all children with equal concern and respect to meet their individual needs.

I value and respect the different racial origins, religions, cultures and languages in a multi-ethnic society so that each child is valued as an individual without racial or gender stereo-typing. I will not discriminate against children on the grounds of disability, age, class, family, status and HIV/Aids status.

I provide equal chances for each child to learn and develop to their full potential, taking into account each child’s age and stage of development, gender, ethnicity, home language, and ability.

I encourage Parents to share with us any special occasions, which may enhance the children’s learning and understanding.

All children in my care are given the opportunity to play with all the toys (subject to health and safety with children under 3 years of age). No toys are just for girls or just for boys. I try to ensure my toys reflect positive images of children and people from different cultures and with different abilities.

I challenge racist and discriminatory remarks that I feel inaproppiate, attitudes and behaviours from the children in my care and other adults.

I encourage the children to develop a healthy respect of each other’s differences and to value everyone as an individual. I will support children’s emotional welfare and well-being and to respect the needs of others.

I will always help children to feel good about themselves and others by celebrating the differences which make us unique.
