Our ethos here at the Patch is completely based around the children being the centre of everything we do.

We firmly believe that the first five years of a child’s life influences their life chances, ,health and wellbeing.

We use our tree logo to represent our Pedagogy, the tree demonstrates how we lead learning to provide the best outcomes for our children. Each branch of our tree represents an area we feel important to enable children to grow, develop and be ready for their next steps in their learning journey and ultimately reach their full potential and become a responsible citizen.


Our main branches represent::

Security, health and wellbeing

A spiraling Curriculum

An enabling enriched environment

Positive relationships

Partners in learning

Each main branch has numerous small branches coming from it which make up the elements of the main branches, they all need each other and ensure we deliver excellent teaching and wonderful experiences for our children.
