What is it like to attend this early years setting?
The provision is outstanding

Children gain an exceptionally strong sense of belonging and have the confidence to independently explore. Their emotional security is promoted through the consistent approach by staff to celebrate their individual attributes. This enables children to build strong friendships and show empathy for their peers.
Older children have set tasks, such as 'water monitor'. They ...take responsibility very seriously and take pride in completing their daily tasks. Younger children enjoy sharing their own family books with familiar adults.
