What is it like to attend this early years setting?

The provision is outstanding

Children receive the best possible start in their education in this exceptional setting.

Their behaviour is exemplary as they play and fully immerse themselves in this inspiring environment. Children thoroughly enjoy exploring in a variety of inviting spaces. Outdoor areas promote children's physical development.

Children delight as they play sack races with their peers and cheer as they jump across the finish line. Children enjoy sensory experiences as they mix foam and paint together; they notice the marks they make with their fingers as staff guide them to make circles. Children are extremely familiar with ro...utines.

Staff ensure that transitions throughout the day are seamless, for example, they sing a five-minute warning song for children to prepare to tidy up. This helps children fully understand the expectations of them and ensures that they feel exceptionally safe and secure. The environment is skilfully designed to motivate the development of children's language and literacy.

Children enjoy sharing stories. They listen attentively and respond to familiar stories about a caterpillar as they use props to tell the story. Staff introduce new language to children, such as 'cocoon', as they learn the life cycle of the butterfly.

All children make rapid progress in their learning and development.
