What is it like to attend this early years setting?

The provision is outstanding

Children are resilient, confident learners. They arrive motivated to learn and settle quickly. Children demonstrate the ability to assess risk as they work together to build an obstacle course.

They use their core muscles to lift, move and carry blocks, and place them in a line to balance on. Staff closely supervise them to ensure they remain safe. The children help each other to carry ladders to add to the obstacle course.

Mathematical language is weaved in to the activity as staff encourage children to compare size and shape. One child shows the others how to balance on the ladder, saying 'You have to keep you...r feet like that.' Staff talk to the children about balancing and ways to move safely.

Children use their imaginations as they play on the obstacle course 'to escape dinosaurs'. They laugh with delight and shout 'the floor is larva.' Staff immerse themselves alongside the children in their imaginary play, pretending to be the dinosaurs.

Children squeal with delight as they run away. Toddlers become excited as they explore paint; they point to the paint and confidently tell the visitors what colours they have chosen. They use their small-motor skills to paint, using a variety of brushes.

Staff members sit alongside and encourage children, joining in with the painting and talking to the children about they are doing. Children demonstrate an exceptional sense of pride as they show their creations.

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

Children take the rabbit to the vets for a check up. The vet allowed the children to take a working stethoscope back to the nursery. Children listen to the rabbit's breathing and its heart beating, and staff support them to learn about the rabbit's anatomy.

Babies are nurtured and cared for in the warm, inviting baby room. Enthusiastic staff members read stories about animals. They ensure their reading is slowly paced, allowing for pauses to let the babies process what they have heard.

Babies gather round and immerse themselves in the book, making the animal noises with delight.Parents and grandparents speak of the 'exceptional development' of their children at nursery. They talk about the rapid progress children make and how the nursery feels like an extended family.
