This provision is outstanding The dedicated manager and her experienced team are deeply committed to providing children and their families with the best possible care and learning experiences. Since the last inspection, rigorous attention has been given to the outdoor environment and monitoring of children’s progress to drive changes and raise standards even further. Partnerships with parents are excellent. Parents are exceedingly well supported by conscientious staff to ensure their children’s learning and welfare needs are fully met. Comments from parents are highly supportive of the staff who they say are exceptional and play a significant role in the care and development of their children. Staff develop highly effective partnerships with external professionals and other services. Together, they achieve the best possible outcomes for all children, particularly those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities. All children are aware of the importance of being healthy and leading healthy lifestyles. Daily opportunities for outdoor play and weekly physical education sessions help promote exceptional physical skills. The exceedingly rich outdoor learning environment greatly extends the range of skills children acquire and promotes how they learn about growing and tending vegetables and herbs. Staff use highly effective approaches to promote positive behaviour based on children’s age and stage of development.
