What is it like to attend this early years setting?

The provision is outstanding

Children show high levels of energy and excitement as they arrive on a morning. They positively flourish in this exceptionally nurturing setting, where their happiness and development are paramount. Staff know the children extremely well.

Children form exceptionally strong emotional bonds with them, helping them to feel safe and secure. Children react very positively to staff during their play, and show high levels of engagement throughout the day. Children of all ages are provided with an excellent outdoor learning environment to curiously explore, think about and investigate.

Children enjoy experiences with co...nfidence, excitement and determination. For instance, children excitedly approach the planting and growing area. They use watering cans to water the plants, and talk about how big they will grow.

Children's behaviour is exemplary. Staff reinforce their expectations of children's behaviour exceedingly well. For example, they ring the bell when it is tidy-up time, and consistently reinforce sharing and taking turns during the day.

Children are treated with the highest level of respect for their own unique characters. They are supported to begin building strong friendships from an early age. They learn to manage their feelings and emotions, and treat each other with respect and kindness.
