Across the setting, mathematical language and concepts are heard within child-initiated and adult-directed conversations. Babies and children make predictions and test their ideas. They use language of number, quantity, shape and size in their play.

Staff meticulously plan activities to enable children to be confident and capable. They seek opportunities to build on children's curiosity of the world around them. Staff ignite children's love of the outdoors, who are overjoyed at what they find in the forest school.
