What is it like to attend this early years setting?

This provision meets requirements Children are supported by the nurturing and friendly staff team to feel safe and secure. They separate from their parents and carers with ease and are eager to investigate the activities on offer. Children enjoy drawing pictures, which they carefully colour in with felt-tip pens.

Staff sit alongside them and engage in conversation, which helps them get to know each other better. They make children laugh and giggle, which supports them to feel happy and relaxed during their time at the club. Each morning, children and staff come together for a morning briefing.

During this time, staff and children introduce themselves and t...hey go through the club's rules and routine for the day. Staff sit with young children to make sure they understand and provide them with further explanations if not. They support children's confidence and self-esteem effectively.

Children are encouraged to share their ideas for activities they would like to do during their time at the club. Young children share their thoughts with staff who sit next to them. Staff encourage them to raise their hand and tell the rest of the group.

Young children state that they would like to draw and play on the 'trim trail'. Staff listen attentively to the children's ideas. This demonstrates that they value children's contribution to the discussion.

Children are encouraged to be an active member of the club. They create signs and decorations for the entrance to make this more welcoming, especially for children who might be new. Children copy video tutorials to help them draw familiar movie characters.

All children are involved and display high levels of effort and concentration, becoming completely absorbed in the activity.Children benefit from regular opportunities for fresh air and exercise. They play a range of group games together.

Children have fun as they play hide and seek tag. They delight in running between the school playground and adjoining field. Young children buddy up with a staff member at first but quickly build the confidence required to become more independent in their play.

Staff support children's awareness of a healthy lifestyle. They remind children to follow good hygiene procedures, such as washing their hands before snack time. Staff talk to children about healthy choices and explain that fruit or vegetables are a good option for a mid-morning snack.
