Amanah Day Nursery


The Amanah Day Nursery recognises and welcomes all codes of practice produced by appropriate commissions for the promotion of equal opportunities for all.

Admissions:

We have a separate admissions policy. In our nursery every child and member of staff/student, volunteer or visitor will be treated with respect and as an individual. No one will be discriminated against in terms of religion, culture, race, colour, national origin, language, status, gender, sexuality and disability. We will encourage our children and staff to learn and embrace other cultures and respect other cultural religious festivals. We encourage everyone to join in and participate in our activities. We provide activities that enable all children no matter what their ability to explore and learn about the multicultural society in which they live.

Resources:

We offer multicultural toys and learning equipment for all children no matter what their learning ability is. We offer dressing up clothes, books from various cultures and communities. We also have bilingual/multilingual books and posters. We also have an Islamic teacher on our team who carries out the Islamic teaching to our children.

Food:

We offer a nutritious menu that covers all religious and dietary needs for the children in our nursery. We do kindly request parents not to provide their children with any pork products in their lunch boxes. This is because the nursery follows the Islamic ethos.

Staff Recruitment:

The nursery aims to ensure that individuals are recruited, selected, trained and promoted on the basis of equality and occupational skills requirements. The nursery will ensure that no job applicant or employee will receive less favourable treatment on the grounds of age, gender, marital status, race, religion, colour, cultural or national origin, sexuality, status disability or where they live.

Selecting Learning Equipment:

The Amanah Day Nursery aim to provide the children with learning equipment that will help develop new skills and concepts in the course of their learning and their development. We provide learning equipment that is age appropriate for the child. This will then offer the children challenges in their learning environment. The activities will also cover positive images and different ethnic and cultural groups which leads into the planning for the children.

Making sounds and singing:

The nursery encourages children to be creative and expressive in their learning, we encourage this through music, movement and singing. Music, movement and singing are delivered from an Islamic perspective. We also offer other singing and dancing activities to children that are not of the Muslim faith and these sessions are offered to the Muslim children also as part of our EYFS planning and assessment programme we do with all our children. Parents can request to opt out of these sessions if they would not like their child taking part.
We encourage and give opportunity to the children to experiment and investigate objects that produce sounds. For example:

  • Guitar
  • Violin
  • Piano
  • Flute
  • Organ
  • Cymbals
  • Kuba (a long drum with a narrow stick)

Singing and Movements:

Children will have the opportunity to listen to nursery rhymes, nasheed and be able to dance and create shapes in response to the sound of music.

At Amanah we never use radio music or have the radio playing.
