Vision, Mission, Values

Our mission, vision and values play a key role in the quality care and education we provide all children across our nurseries.

Our Mission

To deliver the highest quality care and education by providing a happy, nurturing and stimulating environment, where each child is individually supported to develop to their full potential.

Our Vision

Where every child has the same opportunity to play, learn, connect and thrive in a holistic natural play environment. Where health, happiness and well-being are fundamental parts of every child’s education.

Our Values

At Portland Nurseries we focus on six specific core values. These values are at the core of everything we do and shape the culture of our nurseries.


At the heart of everything we do is the commitment to provide the highest quality care and education where every child is individually supported to develop to their full potential.


All children are unique and every child in our care is valued and supported as an individual.


We are committed to inspiring a child’s natural curiosity to learn; nurtured through new challenges, experiences and opportunities. We support every child to become confident and establish positive self-esteem giving them the foundations to grow.


We believe that high-quality play-based learning is fundamental for the social, emotional, intellectual and physical development of every child in our care. It is through play that children make sense of the world around them, learn about themselves, nurture their imagination and have fun.


We believe the health, happiness and well-being of our staff team and the children in our care is fundamental to their learning and development. We support our staff and children to be emotionally secure, resilient and physically, mentally and emotionally healthy.


We recognise that parents are children's first, most important educators. We work in partnership to build strong positive relationships with the parents and carers of all the children who attend our nurseries.
