All children engage deeply in their meticulously planned learning. They are superbly supported by highly qualified and experienced staff who have immensely high expectations of each child. Children are exceptionally confident learners who play an active role in their own learning and in making decisions.
For example,... at children's committee meetings, children and staff discuss the changes they plan to make to enhance children's experiences at nursery. Children are superbly supported in their quest to become independent and confident learners. They relish solving problems and readily embrace new challenges.
All children demonstrate a can-do attitude to their learning. For example, toddlers show great determination as they decide which utensil is best to carry spaghetti from one container to another. Older children share their ideas and value each other's contributions.
For example, pre-school children negotiate with each other and test out their theories as they discuss why some toys are attracted by a magnet. Children understand the exceptionally high expectations that staff have for their behaviour. They play together harmoniously and demonstrate a deep awareness of the feelings of those around them.
Children of all ages feel happy and safe in this inspiring nursery.
