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

All children make exceptional progress in their learning, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities and those who speak English as an additional language.

Staff make precise and accurate assessments of children's abilities, in partnership with their parents. This helps them to identify any delay in children's development. Staff work very closely with external professionals to secure the correct support for children and their families, to ensure any gaps in learning are swiftly reduced.

Staff take time to get to know each individual child. They tailor their teaching and the resources they use to extend children's understanding of their favourite topics. For example, staff use picture cards, books and replicas of planets to develop children's understanding of the solar system.

They broaden children's language and vocabulary, referring to new words in a book, such as 'asteroid', 'orbit' and 'volcano'. Children learn about mathematical concepts as they measure which planets are the nearest and furthest from the sun and which are the biggest and smallest.Children have free access to the excellent outdoor learning environment at all times of the year.

They explore and investigate a wealth of natural and real-life materials. Children are exceptionally creative and imaginative as they pretend they are cooking a meal, arranging various objects on trays. Staff support and extend their role play as they patiently and thoughtfully ask questions about the food their objects represent.

Children have lots of healthy exercise as they adeptly peddle around the garden on tricycles. Staff remind them to think about their safety and the safety of others while they are having so much fun.Staff allow children to decide when they want to eat snack, so as not to interrupt their play and learning.

They take responsibility for their own personal hygiene according to their age and ability and confidently wash their used plates.Staff are dedicated and have a passion for providing the best learning environment for the children in their care.

Parents say the staff surpass their expectations and their children make amazing progress. Partnerships with parents are exceptionally strong. Parents spend time with the staff when they settle their children into the new environment.

Staff observe each other's practice regularly and provide constructive feedback to develop their skills. Providers and managers supervise staff particularly well. They provide excellent opportunities for staff to pursue continuous professional development opportunities.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.All staff are extremely confident in their knowledge of safeguarding, including radicalisation and other safeguarding matters. Staff are fully aware of the signs that could indicate a child is at risk of harm.
