OFSTED SAYS...Children progress well in their communication and language because staff skilfully engages them in conversations and provide enjoyable songs, stories and rhymes. This prepares them well for school…Babies and younger children are carefully nurtured by caring and knowledgeable staff. As a result, they are settled and happy and have their individual needs met well…The nursery is well resourced and organised so children have independent access to toys and play equipment. Staff use the nursery rooms efficiently; enabling children to move around and have varied learning experiences throughout the day… Children learn good behaviour because staff are positive role models. They help the children develop their understanding of social expectations by being respectful and caring. Children follow their lead and demonstrate kind and helpful behaviour to adults and each other.
