What Ofsted had to Say!

Staff build effective partnerships with parents, who are exceptionally
complimentary about the setting. Staff share children’s learning through daily
feedback. They actively encourage parents to extend children’s learning at
home. For example, they provide older children with resources they can share
with their parents at home.

Staff are excellent role models. They provide superb support to children in all
areas of the curriculum. There is an exceptionally strong focus on developing
children’s language and the skills they need for future learning. Staff introduce
phonics to teach older children that letters and words have meaning. Children
identify the letters in their name and begin to try and form each letter. Some
children successfully write their whole name, proudly showing staff and visitors
how they write from left to right.

Staff are excellent role models

Children develop a strong sense of right and wrong. They consistently display
excellent behaviour due to well-established boundaries and carefully structured
routines. Staff have very high expectations for all children, who respond positively
to the experiences on offer.

Children thrive in this exceptional nursery. They are provided with high-quality care
and an extremely calm and stimulating learning environment. Children are inspired
to engage in purposeful play, indoors and outdoors, with a wide range of resources
that encourage them to be curious and creative.
