At Willow Brooke Day Nursery we hope to support our children so that they develop a positive sense of themselves, they feel confident to speak up, be heard and have their opinions valued. British values are about promoting a tolerant, democratic society, where freedom of speech lives comfortably alongside respect for all. Here are some examples of the fun ways we promote British Values at Willow Brooke Day Nursery.
