Our vision is for Jersey to be the best place for all children to grow up
We appreciate childhood as a unique and valuable stage of life and are aware that the quality of childhood experience has lifelong consequences. We want to provide opportunities for all children to become confident and resilient individuals, successful learners and responsible citizens and that they have safe, stable, stimulating and nurturing relationships with their parents and/or carers.
All of our children deserve to have the best start in life, growing up in an environment that nurtures their development, derives safety and security from their parents and care givers, accesses high quality early years services and encourages them to have aspirations for the future and their ability to achieve them. What children experience in their earliest years is key to their success in adulthood.
Our mission is to make Jersey a child and family friendly island
We recognise that all parents want the best for their children and value the vital role played by parents and carers in securing the best outcomes for them in early childhood. During the early years adults have significant impact on children’s health and physical development, social, emotional and personal learning and on the development of their language and communication skills.
We believe that working together with families, communities and partner agencies in an integrated way, will deliver high quality services which will meet the needs of all our children.
