What does the early years setting do well and what does it need to do better?

Leaders ensure that all children have access to their full entitlement of early education. Where children have special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND), leaders work effectively with families and professionals.

Practitioners support children to build on their mathematical skills. They provide activities that encourage children to recognise numbers. Children match these numbers with groups of objects and count with confidence.
