Staff are highly skilled at tuning in to children's motivations and understanding. They accurately plan the next steps in each child's learning. Children are highly motivated and develop a real thirst for learning.
All staff are highly skilled and sensitive in helping children form secure emotional attachments. Children's individual care needs are always met extremely well and their confidence and emotional well-being is effectively supported.
Working with parents ensures that parents are fully engaged in their child's learning. This shared approach effectively supports children's learning, development and well-being, both in their own home and nursery school.
An astute and well-targeted programme of professional development always focuses on the impact for children, which contributes to all children making excellent progress from their starting points.
An experienced team works well together, which means the organisation of the nursery school is excellent. They provide a relaxed, fun and homely environment where each child is respected and valued.
We have an exceptionally effective partnership with the local school ensure a seamless move to the school reception class. Local school children are excellent role models. They visit the nursery school daily, and are involved in the young children's learning.
The children have the opportunity to think and learn about staying safe in a wide variety of situations. The teaching about hygiene routines and why some rules are needed to promote their well-being is exceptional.
