They encourage children to keep trying and to do their best. For example, when children are not sure if they can complete a jigsaw, staff suggest they work together to do so. Children smile with pride once the puzzle is completed.

Several staff members also work at the host school. This means they are well placed to know what children have been doing and learning at school. They use this knowledge well to engage children in lots of conversations and to check in regularly with children who may have had a tricky day.
