What is it like to attend this early years setting?

The provision is outstanding

Children are extremely happy and excited to go in to nursery; they eagerly greet the staff and are keen to play and explore. The kind and nurturing staff are passionate about what they do. All staff know the children very well.

They provide a focused curriculum which provides all children with targeted support to help them to make the best progress possible. Staff provide children with a wide range of interesting and exciting learning activities that ignite children's excitement for learning. For example, children are motivated to learn as they create their own volcanos.

Staff support children to explore ways of... making lava by creating experiments. Children relish in excitement as they watch the chemical reaction after they have added vinegar to bicarbonate of soda to create an eruption. This sparks children's curiosity and interest in what else they can use.

Leaders are sensitive to the impact that COVID-19 may have had on the children and their families. They ensure that all children have the support that they need to feel secure. Key-person systems are exceptionally well established.

Children are extremely secure and settle quickly; flourishing in the care of the staff who look after them. Children confidently join in with activities in the neighbouring rooms and all staff welcome children to join in with activities that they show interest in. This helps support children with transitions when they are ready to move up to the next aged room within the nursery.

Children listen intently, take turns and follow rules well, demonstrating excellent self-control for their ages.Staff use children's interests in books and stories well to engage them and to extend their learning further. Staff frequently share stories with children, and they plan activities around children's interests in stories.

Children eagerly join in searching for a bear in the garden as staff use children's favourite stories to ignite their imaginations. Children giggle as they tiptoe and anticipate the bear, then turn and run with excitement.All children learn to be independent from a young age.

Even the youngest children look in mirrors and use flannels to wipe their own faces after mealtimes. Children learn to serve their own food and feed themselves confidently using cutlery. Older children wash their plates and help to clear the tables.

Parents comment on how confident and independent their children are. They are extremely happy with the care that their children receive at nursery.Staff place a high emphasis on children's language and communication skills.

They provide children with strategies to help them to communicate their needs if their language is still developing. Staff expose children to a rich vocabulary. Children learn to use and explore different languages spoken within the nursery.

They confidently talk about what they know, how to greet each other and understand the variety of languages used by peers and staff.Children with special educational needs and/or disabilities are exceptionally well supported. Staff work closely with parents and other professionals to access support and funding so that children have the support that they need to help them to achieve.

Leaders and staff have recently created a sensory space where children can have time to calm down if they are having difficulties dealing with their emotions. Staff reflect on the positive impact that this has had on children.


The arrangements for safeguarding are effective.

Leaders and staff ensure that children's welfare and safety is given the highest priority. Leaders ensure that all staff have an excellent understanding of their responsibilities to keep children safe. Staff involve children in learning about risks; they carry out risk assessments of the garden.
