The preschool receive funding for the provision of free early education to children aged two, three and four years. The provision offers support to children who have special education needs and/or disabilities, and those who have English as an additional language. There is a total of five staff.

What the setting needs to do to improve further To further improve the quality of the early years provision the provider should: enhance the outdoor environment by increasing the displays of signs and labels to support children’s learning further.
