What is it like to attend this early years setting?

The provision is outstanding

This nursery is a hub of excellence. Leaders are dedicated and passionate about providing all children with the very best start. Staff have devised a broad and varied curriculum that is highly ambitious for all children.

Promoting children's communication and language skills is at the heart of this nursery. Every room of the nursery is full of energetic, lively and cheerful staff and children experience high-quality interactions at all times.Children are enthralled to explore and investigate the endless amounts of exciting opportunities available.

This ensures that they develop a passion for life-long learning f...rom an early age. For example, older children are engrossed as they discover a large egg in their room. They confidently discuss what could be inside the egg and research how they can take care of it.

Children learn about the life cycle of chickens as they watch real chicken eggs hatch within incubators. Toddlers are enthralled as they make their own play dough and join in with their daily dough gym session. Children show impressive levels of motivation and concentration in their play.

Staff have very high expectations for all children. Children's behaviour is exemplary. They are extremely kind and well behaved.

Children say 'sharing is caring' as they pass a water jug to their friends at snack time. They play very well together, sharing toys and resources exceptionally well.

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

All children, including those who speak English as an additional language and those with special educational needs and/or disabilities, thrive in this fully inclusive environment.Promoting children's communication and language skills is at the heart of the nursery.

For example, joyful singing permeates throughout every room. Staff ensure that children are consistently exposed to a language-rich environment. Family members surprise children as they come into the nursery to be a 'mystery reader' each week.

Older children tell the inspector why it is good to spend time outdoors and which foods are good for their bodies. Children engage in activities such as yoga and meditation. This helps to support their physical development and encourages mindfulness.

Children show tremendous levels of independence. Younger children quickly learn the routines that help them develop their independence and determination to do things for themselves. For example, children learn to serve their own food at lunchtime and pour their own drinks.
