What is it like to attend this early years setting?

The provision is outstanding

Children thrive in this exceptionally nurturing and stimulating setting. They keenly participate in the high-quality activities staff plan for them.

Children are highly motivated, eager to explore and they develop a real thirst for learning. Staff are clear about what they want the children to learn and they provide wonderful opportunities to support their development. As a result, children are immensely proud of what they know and can do.

For example, they confidently complete puzzles and are beginning to write words.Babies settle quickly and develop strong attachments to the staff, who are respectful and extre...mely attentive to their needs. Staff constantly interact with children with genuine affection.

Children's behaviour is exemplary and they learn to use excellent manners. They have high levels of respect for one another as they happily take turns and share with their friends.Staff have very high expectations for all children, including those with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND).

Children are supported to make exceptional progress in their learning and are very well prepared for school.While parents drop their children at the door due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, and are unable to enter the setting, they are kept well informed of the progress their children make. They are also given guidance about how to support their children's learning at home through the use of an online application.

Older children are keen to learn to read and write and take part in activities, which effectively support them to do so.Children have ample opportunities to develop their physical skills. Babies pull themselves to standing and use tools to fill and empty containers or mix play dough.

Children have age-appropriate opportunities to learn about people and communities other than their own.

The setting promotes equality and children are supported to understand what makes them unique.
