They are passionate in their aim to give all children the very best start in life. This passion is reflected in all staff’s practice. As a result, all children who attend the setting receive high-quality learning experiences. • The systems to plan, deliver and monitor the curriculum are exceptionally successful.

This helps all children to make consistently high rates of progress, including those whose starting points are lower than expected and those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND). • Staff use their bilingual skills exceptionally well.
