Back to the Garden Childcare in Broadheath: Our 4 principles to create a beautiful, empowering space

At Back to the Garden childcare in Broadheath, Altrincham, we have built a day nursery with strong values and principles that help us deliver the very best childcare. These values and principles are at the core of everything we do, from the design of the nursery to meal times, and it is what makes this day nursery in Broadheath so unique.

Our 4 main principles are:

  • Well-being and holistic development

  • Empowerment

  • Family and Community

  • Relationships

Well-being and holistic approach

Children need a broad and rich curriculum to help them become more capable in all aspects of life, which is why we take a holistic approachto teaching. When people hear the words “holistic approach” they often don’t understand the true nature of what this means, and why it is the best possible approach to childcare.

“A holistic approach…
…the belief that the parts of something are intimately interconnected and explicable only by reference to the whole - thinking about the bigger picture.”

Every aspect of the child’s context- their physical surroundings, their emotional state, their relationships with others and their immediate needs will affect what children learn from any experience. That’s why we make sure every part of their education experience positively encourages them to learn and develop at their own pace, growing their capabilities across all dimensions.


We are committed to empowering the children to create and act on their own ideas, developing knowledge and skills in their own areas of interest, and encouraging them to make their own decisions and judgements.

Family & Community

We love the fact that children are like sponges - they model everything a parent or carer does and incorporates what they see into their own lives! That’s why at Back to the garden in Altrincham, we aim to always build on the knowledge and experiences children bring with them from home and are committed to building a family-like community here in our unique day nursery.


The life experience children gain through responsive and reciprocal relationships with people, their parents, places and things around them is simply magical and so we are dedicated to creating a beautiful day nursery that is filled with respectful relationships, encouragement, warmth and acceptance.
