Summery of Findings:

  • Children are very happy, settled and secure in the welcoming atmosphere.
  • Staff know all the children well and interact with them with warmth, enthusiasm and care.
  • The manager is reflective and ambitious. She has a clear commitment to the continuing development of the provision. She leads the staff in reviewing their practice accurately and effectively to help improve learning experiences for children.
  • Children enjoy a wide range of creative and engaging activities. For example, they consider which animals are found in the Arctic and create their own Arctic scene.
  • Children acquire good mathematical skills. For example, they identify numerals at snack time and they count out the corresponding pieces of fruit from the bowl.
  • Staff fully value parents’ involvement in their children’s learning and development. Parents appreciate the successful care practices, such as the effective settling-in process and the quality, personalised care staff give their children.
  • Children learn to be independent in managing their own needs. This helps prepare them for the next steps in their learning, including school.
