What is it like to attend this early years setting?

The provision is outstanding

Children demonstrate extremely high levels of motivation when they arrive at the safe, nurturing, and extremely well-resourced environment.

They quickly become engrossed in the stimulating and carefully planned experiences. Children make excellent progress in their all-round development. They demonstrate determination and problem-solving skills.

Babies eagerly explore sensory experiences; they laugh as they realise when they wave a scarf near feathers, they blow and move around. Toddlers take turns to share mallets to smash up large ice cubes and rescue toys. Children are fascinated and focused during their play....

Children have secure bonds with all staff, and close friendships with one another. Staff ensure routines are consistently implemented, as a result, children's behaviour is excellent. Children help create the nursery rules, they are completely aware of the high expectations staff have of them.

They know their actions affect others. As a result, the learning environment is calm and accessible for all children. Children flourish, and gain an abundance of knowledge and skills in readiness for school.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, children experienced fewer opportunities outside the home. As a result, leaders have implemented a programme of meaningful outings and visits. For example, following an interest in nursery rhymes, children enjoyed a visit to a bakery to see how buns are made.

These activities help children to be confident in social situations.

Children's learning about the world around them is inspirational. Staff go the extra mile to give children experiences that may not otherwise get. They regularly visit a community garden to plant vegetables, and to forests to learn about nature.
