Staff take children on local trips to help them to learn through new experiences. For example, children took part in Remembrance day celebrations at the local church and have visited the local garden centre and parks.

Staff use every opportunity to support children's learning. Children demonstrate a phenomenal knowledge of how their bodies work and how to stay healthy. This knowledge by far exceeds expectations for their young age and shows their excellent ability to recall information and put this into context.
