What is it like to attend this early years setting?

This provision meets requirements Children enjoy their time at the holiday club.

They form close relationships with the kind and friendly staff. Children behave very well and are familiar with the club's rules and routines. As older children play hide and seek tag, they respect and follow boundaries put in place by staff.

Children do not hide or run any further than where staff have specified. For example, no further than the tree or the 'play pod'.Children are supported to make decisions about the activities they would like to take part in.

Younger children enthusiastically run and jump on to a pedal that shoots 'rockets' into the sky. They gaze ...up at the sky in awe and talk to their friends and staff about how far it is gone. Children collect their rocket when it has returned to the ground and line up again to await their next turn.

Children's individuality and uniqueness is celebrated. They are respectful and accepting of each other and enjoy discussions with staff about their home life and families. For example, children discuss the different languages that members of their family speak and talk about the individuals that live in their household.
