What is it like to attend this early years setting?

The provision is outstanding

Children run excitedly into base camp, eager to start their day of wonder and curiosity. They leave their parents with ease as they become engrossed in the wealth of activities on offer in this inspirational setting.

Children are welcomed by exceptionally happy, motivated and nurturing practitioners. They form close and trusting bonds with their key worker and the team of staff. Children immerse themselves in learning as they make magical potions.

They discuss in detail the ingredients they use. For example, they explain that cumin is used in curry dishes. Children thrive in the outdoor environment and are compl...etely absorbed in the wonder of nature.

Children's language and vocabulary are exceptional. They make a 'marble run', balancing pipes on tree trunks. They work closely together, communicating how to solve problems they encounter.

Children discuss why the ball cannot go up the tubes because of gravity and the pull of the earth.Children are very aware of the environment around them. They listen with intent to sounds on the walk to the woods and spot birds and insects on the way.

Children talk about the puddles 'evaporating' as the water disappears. They relish painting with natural materials, such as twigs and feathers, and mix colours with enthusiasm, understanding and predicting the changes in colour. Even the very youngest children show excitement and concentration in the magical fairy garden.

They skilfully use pipettes to transport water and ingredients, experimenting as they mix them together. Children show sustained concentration in the outdoor kitchen as they use a wealth of natural materials to make dinner and act out real-life scenarios.
