Ofsted says:

“Leaders share a strong commitment to provide the best possible experiences for children. They work closely with parents, staff and children to gather their views and review the provision to identify their strengths.”

“Parents are very positive about the pre-school. They state that they receive regular information about their child’s progress and what their child needs to learn next. Staff offer meaningful suggestions for parents to continue children’s ongoing learning at home. This contributes to the good progress children make.”

“Staff are attentive to children’s individual learning and care needs. They work closely with parents and other professionals to adapt activities and practice to enable all children to participate and develop in their learning.”

“Children establish strong bonds with staff. They demonstrate that they feel safe and secure in their care. Staff provide a nurturing environment. They praise children’s efforts and achievements. This helps children to build good levels of self-esteem.”
