What is it like to attend this early years setting?

This provision meets requirements Children arrive happy to see the staff and their friends and are eager to start having fun. Staff greet them and their parents on arrival and welcome them into the camp. This helps to build positive relationships and ensure children feel a sense of belonging.

Children have free choice to start and select games to play with their friends. For example, young children consider ways of solving problems as they construct a marble run. Children of different ages play well together and older children patiently listen as young children explain the rules of a game.
